UK National Year of Reading Competition
"The UK National Year of Reading, working with London 2012, is launching a nationwide photography project for schools and young people. Celebrating the power of the written word in our everyday lives, The National Year of Reading is looking for classes and individuals (ages 13-19) to send pictures of the words and signs that they best feel represent their local area and what it means to be British. The best images will feature on Get Set, the London 2012 education website, which will act as a huge 'welcome sign' to visitors ahead of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The top prize will be a school visit from an Olympic athlete. The closing date is 20.12.08. This is a campaign to involve and engage young people right across the country with the Olympics and their values - please ensure that you underline that this is not just a London-centric event"
