Big Picture day, get your Brum snaps in!

Firstly – did we miss Spring? Summer’s decided to queuejump once again this year, as my (exceedingly grown up and consummately mature) housemate said to me yesterday, “strappy top season’s upon us once again. Giggidy!” But anyway, I digress.

The Big Picture project’s been running for a while now, and it’s culminating in the grand competition today. For those who aren’t in the know;

It’s a project to create the biggest photo album in the West Midlands. Everyone can add their favourite pictures – family, friends, local landmarks, even your pets, we’ve made it easy to share your photos and tell the stories behind them.”

If you’ve got a good shot of somewhere in the West Midlands, go add it to The Big Picture project today for a chance to get it on a billboard… How cool is that?

Big Picture Day - 8 May Big Picture Day is Thursday 8 May – every photo added on that day will be in with a chance of appearing on giant billboards around the region.

Add your photo of the West Midlands to the Big Picture on Big Picture Day and it’ll automatically be entered in a competition — eight winners will be selected to get the full billboard treatment. There’s sure to be one in a town near you!

Upload to the web or text from your mobile — it’s up to you. To add a photo by MMS send it with BIGPIC first in the text of your message to 60300*.

Every photograph taken will form part of our world record attempt to make the biggest photo mosaic in the world and eight lucky winners will have their image displayed on their own billboard for everyone to see.

For more info, see The Big Picture’s web site. Also, Donato ‘Bostin’ Esposito is about to embark on his fundraising trek around Peru in support of the British Heart Foundation – go sponsor him at, and buy the BHF charity t-shirt from the Bostin shop.

Right, excuse me, I’m off to dust down the barbeque in preparation for this weekend.
