Today we bring you our final daily Flickr gallery of the 2012 Smithsonian Folklife Festival. Take a look!
It’s been a pleasure seeing this year’s Festival through the eyes of our visitors, taking in countless details we might otherwise have missed. Festival visitors who share their images on Flickr allow an online audience to participate in the magical chance encounters that are an essential part of the Festival experience. Our Flickr galleries also give visitors an opportunity to see their work featured as part of the Smithsonian’s virtual presence, and to share the Folklife Festival with those who can’t visit the National Mall in person.
Tomorrow we’ll bring you a selection of our very favorite visitor images in our Best of the Festival gallery. Photographers selected for this gallery will receive free Festival merchandise in acknowledgement of their participation.
Twitter users, follow our Flickr Top Ten galleries with #FlickrTopTen and follow the Festival with #2012Folklife. Not on Flickr? Sign up for free here.
A big thank you to all of the photographers and videographers who shared their work on Flickr this year! See you again at the 2013 Smithsonian Folklife Festival!
Returning this year to moderate the Flickr Group and select the galleries is Ariel Fielding, a former Folklife Festival Fellow in Community and Online Engagement. A lifelong photographer, Ariel built her first pinhole camera at the age of six, and learned to use a darkroom at the same age. She works as a performing arts producer in Toronto.
