Our live photo challenge at the Focus on the Story International Photo Festival gave participants three days to shoot, edit and upload their best images to, the world’s largest photo community.

There was no theme to the EyeEm 72-Hour Photo Challenge but there were plenty of things to shoot — from the Capitals’ game 5 viewing party to the Capital Pride Parade to Saturday’s sunrise photo meetup at the Lincoln Memorial. You can see all the entries, here.

A panel of judges from Glen Echo Photoworks picked these three winners.
