Flickr Photo Contest

In conjunction with its upcoming exhibition Terra Cotta Warriors: Guardians of China’s First Emperor, National Geographic Museum is running a photo challenge to find your very best terra cotta warrior photographs. Have you visited the First Emperor’s tomb in Xi’an, China? Do you have fantastic photographs of the warriors, horses, chariots, or any of the remarkable archaeological finds? Submit your photos here.

Please upload photos that match our theme and continue to check back. We will periodically review the images and select photos to feature on our blog and the best photo will featured at the museum during the exhibition!

Terra Cotta Warriors will be on view in Washington, DC from November 19, 2009 – March 31, 2010.

Every Wednesday, we will feature one Flickr competitor on our blog: Stay tuned to see if you are on there!

    It will be a wonderful exhibit. We visited Xian May 08 and ordered a General terra cotta warrior who was shipped from China to us. It is a replica, but made from the same clay as the originals. One would not know the difference. He now stands 6′ tall in our living room and is a constant reminder of this Wonder of the World! The actual buildings of warriors in their natural state just takes your breath away and the 360 degree movie was brillantly done to give one the view of the history being made at the time of these warriors being made by the slaves of the Emperor.

    Will the terra cotta soldiers on display be the real thing or copies?
