Smithsonian National Museum of American History Seeking Family Photos From Disney for Future Exhibit
The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History is seeking photos taken at Disneyland or Walt Disney World that reflect personal guest experiences. Submitted photos and stories might appear in a future exhibit.
Here is their description of what they want:
Photos of you, your friends, and your families at Disneyland or Walt Disney World and the story of what the photograph and visit mean to you. When was the visit, and with whom? What feelings did it evoke for you?
We want to see photographs that show Disney Parks as you experienced them: posing with characters, kids worn out and sleeping, families, couples, individuals, people of all abilities, ethnicities, ages, on rides, eating together, looking at maps—everyday stuff! All decades and time periods, especially as Disney Parks change and evolve over time. We love candid and posed, even fingers on the lens are A-OK. We can crop photos for composition, so don’t hold back on blurry or double-exposed photos.
We won’t be able to use all the images we receive, as we have limited space. Privacy and permissions rules will also impact which images we can use. If you aren’t the child in the photo (or their guardian), we won’t be able to use photos in which a child’s face is identifiable. Same for Disney cast members.
Guests can send photos to [email protected] with a few sentences about it, as well as a name and contact info. For more information and examples, visit the museum’s website.
