Woohoo! Postcrossing is turning 10 later this month… can you believe it? By internet standards, we’re practically dinosaurs… and we think that’s a good thing. In a time when websites come and go rather quickly, we’re still sticking around, quietly connecting the world, one postcard at a time. Cheers to that!
Remember when we used to make videos with your lovely photos for these milestones? We loved seeing all your smiley faces, but the videos were getting a bit too long as more and more members joined… so we decided to change things a little.
This time around, we’ve set up a special page with a map, and would like to invite all postcrossers to pin either a picture or a video of yourself celebrating Postcrossing’s 10th birthday. Sing “Happy birthday!” in your own language, hug your postbox, bake a postcard-themed cake, or take a selfie with your wall of postcards… anything’s allowed as long as it is creative, festive and sets the mood for our 10th birthday party. Oh! And it must have something to do with Postcrossing too.
All submissions will show up as markers on the world map, and we hope to have it filled with smiles by the time the anniversary comes around on July 14th. Until then, we encourage you to browse, share and favourite the best ones — there will be prizes for the most favourited photos and videos, of course!
Only one entry is allowed per person, and entries can be submitted until the end of the month — but naturally, the earlier you do it, the more chances you have to collect favourites.
So, let’s go! Put on your most festive shirt, grab your camera and make something that puts a smile on everyone’s face! Let’s show the whole world what a Postcrossing party looks like! We’ll be browsing the entries and cheering you on, with our balloons and party candles in hand! :)
The Little Mail Carriers helped us come up with these photos to get the party started! :)
