 You can upload your own photographs to the 2013 Smithsonian Folklife Festival Flickr Group. We select a gallery of our favorites every day, and take them to a wider audience by sharing them on our Festival blog.

If you’d like to see your work featured as part of the Folklife Festival’s virtual presence, join us on Flickr. Photographers selected for the final Best of the Festival Gallery will receive free Festival merchandise in acknowledgement of their contributions. Want to meet your fellow photographers offline? Join us on Saturday, July 6, for a Smithsonian Folklife Festival Photowalk.

Be sure to tag your photos #2013Folklife.

Returning to moderate the Flickr Group and select the galleries for the third year in a row is Ariel Fielding, a former Folklife Festival Fellow in Community and Online Engagement. Ariel first learned to use an SLR camera and a darkroom at the age of six, and has an enduring interest in documentary photography. She recently collaborated with photographer Michael Barker on ‘ALPHA Alternative School 1972/2012,’ an ethnographic art project based on environmental portraiture.
