Calling all sugar-crazed globetrotters! It’s that time of year again, time to bust your little marshmallow bunnies and chicks out of their cellophane cages to let them explore the world.
Yes, it’s the return of Peeps in Places, and we’re asking our readers to submit their far-flung photos to National Geographic this year in an attempt to create the ultimate global Peeps photo gallery. Our photo editors will be scanning your images and selecting their favorites each week, and we’ll be showcasing the best images on the Web.
So how do you to get your Peep photo noticed? We’ll be looking for creativity and photos that do the most with their sense of place (take a peek at last year’s gallery to get an idea of what we’re looking for). A sense of humor helps as well. “We want to know what it felt like to be there,” says Dan Westergren, Senior Photo Editor at National Geographic Traveler. “And we want to be able to tell by looking at the photograph that the Peep had a good time.”
Here’s how to submit your photos:
1) Go to the Your Shot Page at NationalGeographic.com.
2) If you have a profile, log in. If you don’t have one yet, create a profile.
3) Agree to the Terms and Conditions.
4) Upload your photo, and, this is important, be sure to tag your photo: Peeps. That’s how we’ll be able to find it.
We’ll be sorting through the images to find our favorites, and will be posting them here on the blog in the next few weeks. We’re looking forward to seeing how far afield the little marshmallow treats will wander this year.
