BBC South East Diamond Jubilee photo mosaic

BBC South East Diamond Jubilee photo mosaic


BBC South East are creating a huge piece of art for the Diamond Jubilee.   The “People’s Monarch” will be a massive photo mosaic portrait of the Queen created from 10,000 photographs of people from the South East. They hope it’ll be a "celebration of Britain in the Jubilee year"....with the public building a giant photo portrait of the monarch using images of themselves. 

The portrait will be the size of a double decker bus and will go on display at the Towner
Gallery in Eastbourne from 25th May until 10th June.  It will then go on display at a Kent venue (location yet to be confirmed) So, everyone who submits their photos will get the chance to go along and see themselves hanging on display in an art gallery.  

Photos can be old or new, colour or black and white -  as long as they are photographs of people.
Please see the link to the project: Go to http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-17516843 for further details and instructions on how to upload images. 

They need to get over 250 photos submitted each day in order to reach our 10,000 photo target between now and May 11th.

You can send photos from your phones or PC’s, just go to the websites:  www.bbc.co.uk/kent or www.bbc.co.uk/sussex   and follow the instructions.

  1. Cool :). However the link 'click here' doesn't work. Comes up with '404 - Page Not Found'. The other two links work fine though :)
