Help Capture Smithsonian Museums in 3-D

The Smithsonian Folklife Festival needs photographers of all skill levels to join an epic competition during the Smithsonian Inside Out program at this year's Festival, June 24-28 and July 1-5. Any photographer with a digital camera can enter the race to recreate the monumental Smithsonian museums on the National Mall, including the Smithsonian Castle and National Museum of Natural History. Thanks to the Smithsonian’s 3-D imaging staff and the PhotoCity project, you can help share the Smithsonian with the world, while competing for prizes.

Bring your camera to the Folklife Festival and become part of this historic effort!
