NPR's Academy Awards Photo-Caption Contest

Update: More than 1,000 comments later, we've declared the winners. But it's not too late for you to play. So click on through to the Bryant Park Project blog, and write a caption or two.

Writing captions on deadline: No fun. That's where you come in.

So sharpen your wits, dust off your pop-culture encyclopedia and join us for a photo-caption contest. We'll post selected shots from the red carpet, the presenter's podium, and the winners' circle. You write the captions. (Nothing too mean, now: This is NPR, after all.)

Think witty, think smart, think different. Make us laugh, make us cry, make us spit champagne at Ryan Seacrest — and your caption could end up in an NPR slideshow.

We no longer support commenting on stories, but you can find us every day on Facebook, Twitter, email, and many other platforms. Learn more or contact us.
