Coming to this year’s Festival? You can share your photos on the 2013 Smithsonian Folklife Festival Flickr Group. We choose a gallery of our favorites every day, and feature the galleries on our Festival blog. Photographers selected for the final Best of the Festival Gallery will receive free Festival merchandise in acknowledgement of their contributions.

Want to learn some new approaches to the creative and technical challenges of shooting at the Festival? Join us on Saturday, July 6, for a Smithsonian Folklife Festival Photowalk.

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.
