In anticipation of the 67th anniversary of the Mother’s Day House and Garden Tour, the Capitol Hill Restoration Society (CHRS) is sponsoring a photo contest focused on 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.
Take a hi-resolution (1MB or larger) exterior shot (.jpg preferred) of what you think makes a home a Capitol Hill home and email it to HouseTourCHRS@gmail.com. If you are using a cell phone photo, you may text it to 202-329-7864.
Include your name and address, email address, and the address of the property in the photo. In submitting your photo to the CHRS House Tour photo contest, you agree that it will become the property of CHRS, which may reproduce, modify, and digitize and adapt the photograph. You retain the right to continued use of the image.
Entries are due March 8. Winning images receive two passes to the 2024 House and Garden Tour and will be displayed on the CHRS website.
