In anticipation of the 66th anniversary of the Mothers Day Tour, the Capitol Hill Restoration Society is holding a photo contest – “The Capitol Hill Home.”
We’re privileged to live in an environment that is a delight to the eye, with tree shaded streets, lush gardens, yard ornaments and houses with a wealth of architectural detail. Iron stoops, arched windows, stained glass transoms, ornate brickwork, welcoming porches. These are all hallmarks of the quintessential Capitol Hill home.
And CHRS would like to know how you define “The Capitol Hill Home.” So show them, show them all. Take a high resolution (1MB or larger) exterior shot of what you think makes a home a Capitol Hill home and email it to HouseTourCHRS@gmail.com.
The winning images will be awarded two complementary passes to the next in-person CHRS House & Garden Tour (or walking tour) and will be displayed on the website.
If you are using a cell phone photo, you may text it to 202.329.7864. Be sure to include your name and address, email address and the address of the property in the photo.
The submission deadline is March 5, 2023. Details and past winners can be seen at: https://chrs.org/photo-contest-2023/.
