Great in Britain

21 07 2011

I’ve just come across the Great in Britain photo archive. It is definitely worth a look. Here’s the blurb:

Great in Britain is a unique photographic archive of the British people at work. We invite the nation to submit photographs that celebrate the understated pride and passion of the often unsung working heroes that form the bedrock of this great nation. This gives us a fascinating insight into the world of work in Britain, chronicling the diversity of skills that exist in this country, as well as the great innovation and endeavour. will become a unique resource, a visual time capsule that will build a legacy for the future and enable viewers to discover and appreciate those who live and work around them now.

Through the Great in Britain project, Barbour will curate an archive of images that celebrate the Rural Community in Britain. We want to see the people who live and work in the countryside, catalogue the variety and breadth of skills and vocations that exist, and showcase the contribution that they make to our society.

Send us the pictures and tell us the stories of the people that you admire, those from your community, those that truly put the Great in Great Britain.
