For National Geographic's Caption This
Last year, I ran a “Caption This” assignment that was so much fun, I want to do it again. (Check out the final story from 2018 here.)
Every Monday, National Geographic shares a Your Shot photo on our main Facebook page, asking our community of 46 million followers to caption the image. Inspired by that weekly feature, this assignment invites you to submit images that amuse, surprise, and delight. Your photos should make us laugh out loud or say aw.
I’ll be sharing my favorites from this assignment with National Geographic Associate Producer Nathan Strauss for consideration in the weekly National Geographic Facebook feature. His advice: “When I'm selecting Caption This, I'm looking for an image that ignites surprise or delight—an animal making a seemingly human expression or an unlikely pair of animals interacting. Photos should be uplifting and cheerful with a playful mood that encourages our audience to share their reactions.”
Don’t forget to follow National Geographic on Facebook to see if your photo gets selected for the “Caption This” feature.
Submission deadline is May 13, 2019 at 12 p.m. EDT.
