The Observers have logged many miles over the years after their trips around the world with loyal readers — traveling the globe to such exotic locales as Bhutan, Iceland and Thailand. We can’t wait to see where our papers have visited this year. Enter your “It’s Read Everywhere” photos in this year’s photo contest online at www.YourObserver.com.
Click on the “It’s Read Everywhere” photo-contest rectangle located on the bottom right-hand side of YourObserver.com (or CLICK HERE) and upload your photos.
