Every year, the National Cherry Blossom Festival ushers in spring by commemorating the 1912 gift of 3,000 cherry blossom trees from Japan to the United States of America. The festival celebrates the enduring friendship and close relationship between our two countries with a diverse and creative program which promotes traditional and contemporary arts and culture, natural beauty, and community.
IGDC and Blind Whino SW Arts Club are thrilled to showcase this celebration through the incredible work of local photographers. Each year, the IGDC community tirelessly documents the blossoms and events happening around Washington, DC. Please join us as we explore the beauty of the blossoms and vibrant festival displays with a photo show during the 2018 Cherry Blossom Festival.
This open call seeks photographs from past year's National Cherry Blossom Festival and blooming seasons from local photographers. Depictions of beauty and style, landscape and environment, and media and programming; how do your images define the wide variety and diversity of the festival? Submit from now until March 9th.
