Fotoweek D.C. Kicks Off Friday

Fotoweek D.C. started in 2008 as a city-based photo exhibit.  It has now evolved to a large photography festival with nationwide, and even international, draw.  The event includes projections of photos on buildings throughout the city as well as exhibitions, lectures and several workshops.

Past years the festival has garnered thousands of fans and this year’s is expected to be no different with big events.  Weeklong exhibitions will include several exhibitions hosted by the National Geographic Society, the Sweedish Embassy and several others.

Photographers can also have their portfolios reviewed by professionals and had the opportunity to participate in an international competition.  The competition included 13 different categories ranging from art photography to photojournalism.  There was even a category for mobile phone pictures.
