Enter The HRS Home Photo Contest


In anticipation of the 63rd anniversary of the Mother’s Day House and Garden Tour, May 9 and 10, the Capitol Hill Restoration Society (CHRS) is sponsoring a photo contest, “The Capitol Hill Home.” Entries are due Feb. 29. The quintessential Capitol Hill home could be a bay-front Victorian with arched windows and a double front entry. Entries may not be the house itself, but some hidden feature such as: a small, round window overlooking an alleyway; an old corbel architectural adornment that has no structural function; brick detail over the front door; a stained glass transom window or a rusted fountain in the yard. To enter, send a hi-resolution (1MB or larger) exterior shot to HouseTourCHRS@gmail.com. If using a cell phone photo, text it to 202-329-7864. Include a name and address, email address and the address of the property in the photo. The winning images will be awarded two complementary passes to the 2020 CHRS Mother’s Day House & Garden Tour and will be displayed on the website and in the Hill Rag. All submitted photos are property of CHRS, which may reproduce, modify and digitize and adapt them in future. Submitters retain the right to continued use of their images. chrs.org.
