People are invited to upload a photograph of themselves on a website, with the chance of being on a poster commemorating the big events of 2012.

After the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and as people gear up for the start of the London Olympics, the website Faces of Britain is appealing for pictures of people in Northamptonshire who have been taking part in the celebrations.

The photographs will be kept permanently online as a lasting reminder for everyone who joins in.

The site has space for 212 people from every county in Britain to take part, on a first come first served basis.

Once individual areas are complete the 212 photos will be made into a grid-style commemorative poster, which will be given out free of charge to local charities, community groups and libraries, and made available for individuals and organisations to buy.

Katie Sanders, co-founder, said: “This year will be history in the making, so we’re giving everyone enjoying 2012 the opportunity to say ‘we were there’.

“Faces of Britain is free, quick and simple and we’d love as many people as possible to upload their photo. Celebrities including Mick Hucknall, Martin Offiah and Linda Lusardi have already joined in, so they will be in good company.

“We’re also seeking local sponsors, so please get in touch if you’d like to help out with a genuinely unique commemorative project.”

Faces of Britain comprises of a total of 108 areas, representing each county and major city in the UK. In total there is space for almost 23,000 people to upload their picture. Anyone doing so must be 13 or over.
