Philadelphia, we know you’ve got some awesome prom photos. We’d like you to share them with us.

Billy Penn is now collecting prom portraits from readers. One of the most wonderful #fbf times of the year is upon us. The fads through the decades. The high school baby faces. The portrait backdrops. In the coming weeks, we’ll be publishing a story so we can all die over the pics together as a community. Please, email your photos to cassie@billypenn.com.

If you’re feeling self-conscious about photos of your teenaged self, please know this call for submissions comes not from a desire to mock, but from love for prom looks. There’s no hateration in this dancerie, guys. Matter of fact, we’re willing to get the party started ourselves. As a sign our of commitment, we present the proof: These photos of Billy Penn and Spirited Media staffers from our big night(s).
