Before you read this story...
Dear reader, we're asking for your help to keep local reporting available for all. Your financial support keeps stories like this one free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We didn't win an LA Weekly Web Award this year and we're thrilled about it... because our readers did! Among the most important assets to LAist are the photos and stories contributed by our eclectic and perceptive community of readers. Many of the photos we use with our stories every day are sourced from the LAist Featured Photos Pool on Flickr, a crowdsourced archive of photos relevant to Los Angeles which now includes nearly 70,000 photos shared by a community of more than 1,500 readers.

Do you have photos that would help us tell our daily L.A. stories? Add your photos here (and yes, there are a couple rules -- but we may use your photos on the site but we'll gladly give you credit).

Below is the full list of winners in the second annual LA Weekly Web Awards. Congrats to all the winners!
