Only 3 weeks to go until the Jubilee Time Capsule is sealed…

Queen Elizabeth the second

There are only 3 weeks to go until our special Jubilee Time Capsule is sealed forever, a digital Diamond Jubilee gift to Her Majesty the Queen! When we say ‘ours’ we really do mean it – people from all over the world have been contributing to the Capsule, filling it with memories from the last 60 years of Her Majesty the Queen’s reign. From Grenada to Singapore, from Olympic Gold medalist Kirani James to interviews with the grandparents, we have read thousands of your fabulous entries, and we can’t wait for the Queen to see them too!

Last week Chiang Yan Li from Singapore wrote this great entry about her school which won her an engraved iPod touch: (yes, we are giving one away every week until the end of September!)

We are also running a photography competition with The Royal Photographic Society. To win a trip to London, and for the chance to be mentored by RPS photographers, submit your photographic entry into the Capsule here and to read more about our Competitions click here.

End of Polio FLASH MOB: JTC entry by Tegan Maffescioni

A recent Jubilee Time Capsule entry reports on the End of Polio Flash Mob that took place in Perth on the 22nd October.

Submitted by photographer Tegan Maffescioni, the entry contains both photos of the event and a report from the day.

Tegan reports that the Flash Mob was organised to focus attention on the campaign ahead of The Queen’s arrival for CHOGM and the End of Polio Concert which is taking place against the backdrop of Heads of Government Meeting this Friday 28th October.

The End of Polio campaign is a grassroots project coordinated by the Global Poverty Project, in support of global polio eradication efforts led by the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), Rotary International, UNICEF, the World Health Organisation, and the Gates Foundation.
