‘Mad Men’ Look Contest: Enter your photos


Yes, Don Draper is back.

Just in time for the new, much-anticipated season of ‘Mad Men,’ we are launching our annual contest to find the savviest decorators who have best adapted the show’s period-style design into their homes.

Last year, we were amazed (and impressed) at the range of decor — from mirrors to furniture to accents (even ashtrays!) — that you showed off. (You can see photos of the winning entry from the 2010 contest.) This year, we think you can do even better.

Do you have a home with that mid-century modern touch thaty you’ve been dying to show off? Didn’t win last year and want to make a comeback?

Now is your chance. This year, we’re excited to announce that HGTV designer and Post columnist Vern Yip had graciously agreed to serve as one of our four judges. Other judges include home design Post reporter Jura Koncius, The Post’s Real Estate and Where We Live blog editor Sara Kehaulani Goo and freelance writer Amanda Abrams, who has beautifully featured a local midcentury modern home on the Real Estate cover this week.

Our winner (only residents of nearby D.C., Maryland and Virginia can win) will not only get bragging rights, but a Post photographer to take pictures of their home and an article about their style in The Washington Post.

To enter the contest, click on the link below the photo. You will see a photo gallery of previous entries. To enter, upload your photo(s) by clicking the “Browse” button. There will be a space to write a caption about the image. Below that space is a space to enter your contact information (name, email, phone number) so we can reach you if you are a finalist. This information will not appear on our web site.
