The Washington City Paper is accepting votes for their 2011 Best of DC poll now through March 14. Last year, we won 3rd place in the Express’ 2010 Best of DC poll, so we know with your help we can place in this poll, too! Help WPG become #1 by voting us “Best Gallery” at this link.
While we’re asking for your vote, also vote for Martha Oatway as your “favorite artist” at AA2A. You’ve read about Martha’s participation in the program in some of her earlier Postcards from the UK–with your help she can get extra promotion from AA2A. You’ve seen her prints (and there’s another sample, to the side, in case you haven’t) so you know she deserves it!
These polls are more than just popularity contests…OK, they might be partly popularity contests, but they do help the gallery. Did you know that running a 3.94×3 in black and white ad can cost around $330 for one run in some of the local papers? For small businesses and galleries that win a poll like this, it’s promotion that they (and we) can’t usually afford in ad form. If you like WPG (or any other DC area business) then definitely vote for us/them! We definitely appreciate it!
