Since one of the earliest known photographs of the U.S. Capitol in 1846, Washington, D.C., residents and visitors have been capturing images of this national icon, its art and its grounds.

This year, the Architect of the Capitol is inviting the current generation of mobile photographers to join us for our first ever Instagram Meetup (Instameet). Instagrammers will have the opportunity to visit the U.S. Capitol on Saturday, December 14, where they will photograph the Capitol's awe-inspiring Rotunda, find the best angles for a unique shot of the Capitol Dome and get tips from an Architect of the Capitol photographer.

Registration has now closed: If selected to attend, you will receive an email message with additional information no later than Monday, December 9.

Capacity for this opportunity is limited, however the U.S. Capitol is open for tours Monday through Saturday, 8:50 a.m. to 3:20 p.m. Tours must be booked in advance at: http://www.visitthecapitol.gov/plan-visit/book-tour-the-capitol.
