Forbidden travel ephemera. We like the sound of it. 

And we thought you would too, which is why we jumped at the chance to collaborate with Uri Tours, a Korean tour operator that guides travelers around North Korea. They offered to send 100 Fathom readers DPRK-made postcards through the North Korean postal system while Uri Tours is there in April, covering the Pyongyang Marathon for us on Instagram.

Here's how you can snag a souvenir. 

1. Follow Fathom on Facebook.
2. Follow Uri Tours on Facebook.
3. Send an email to with your address.

The first 100 Fathom readers to enter will receive a specialty postcard via North Korean post. Contest ends March 15, 2015.
