Exposed DC is excited to announce its 10th annual Exposed DC Photography Show hosted by the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. from March 10 to April 1, 2016, on the second floor of the Carnegie Library.

These 47 winning photographs were chosen from a contest for their unique view of the Washington area – not as a political venue or tourist destination, but as a place where we live and work and love every day. Five of those photographs will be awarded our Best in Show prizes, each one chosen by a panel of distinguished metro-area photographers: Lucian Perkins, Susana Raab, Lauren Stockbower, Yodith Dammlash, and Carolyn Russo.

To celebrate a decade of amazing local photography, the Exposed DC opening reception will be held throughout the Carnegie Library; cocktail attire suggested. We're showing our commitment to fostering photography for all skill levels and pursuits by partnering with local photography groups to provide entertainment and engaging activities throughout the Library. We're delighted to be joined by Capital Photography Center, Critical ExposureLeica Store DC, Exposure Group African American Photographers AssociationIGDCHOIST Studio and the American Photographic Artists DC Chapter (APA|DC) to help us celebrate the big occasion.

D.C.'s own Bluejacket Brewery will provide their original brews at an open bar; complimentary wine and snacks will also be available. DJ Neville C. will provide dance tunes in the Carnegie Library's fantastic D.C. Map Room.

A full color 10th Anniversary Exhibition Magazine with the last 5 years of winning photos be available at the opening, and online soon. The companion 5th Anniversary Magazine from 2006-2011 will also be available.
