Setting the Scene

Snapshot:  An in-the-moment and convention-less photograph, cradling something brief and wonderful.

Wheat:  A cereal hero in the centuries-great story of cities and civilizations, strong in character yet fragile without proper care.  Happens to be great in beer.

The Theme and Your Assignment

#SNAPSHOTWHEAT #DC is about creating your newest lo-fi glory for posterity.  It can be anything:  ice creams and castle-carousels, perfectly grainy mornings exploring DC's old haunts, lingering afternoons in art halls, witching hours spent among tall-walled relic gardens.  It's your shoot-from-the-hip captures of DC moments.

Take that throwback photo and mark it with #snapshotwheat #dc as you show it off on Instagram or Twitter before midnight on March 21st!

Meet The Judges

Brightest Young Things and DC-based photographer Dakota Fine.  Brightest Young Things is a full-on creative outfit, based in DC and NY, specializing in experience  making.  BYT works with some of the best local artists to bring such ventures to life - Enter Dakota Fine.  In Dakota's words: "great lifestyle photography is all about taking  pictures that tell a genuine story about the subject, a story that will be useful to you when you go to that place, meet that person, or taste that thing."  

New Belgium Brewing Co. Aw shucks!  New Belgium is hosting this contest, and happy to do so.  We're a 100% employee-owned brewery based out of Fort Collins, CO, with a second brewery under construction in Asheville, NC.  Some of our employee-owners live here in DC and the surrounding area, and we're thrilled to be a part of the amazing DC craft beer scene.
