Royal reportage meets citizen photojournalism - The Crown from the Crowd was inspired by Karen Anvil’s world-famous Christmas Day photograph of Prince William, The Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Now we’re calling on YOU, the Great British Public, to raid albums & attics for any unseen royal pictures that chart the extraordinary evolution of the people & personalities of the House of Windsor.
The two week submission window opens on Tuesday 20th March, closing at midnight on Monday 2nd April - Easter Monday. Submit your image/s here.
Additional narrative & social commentary will be provided leading cultural historian and best-selling author Dominic Sandbrook.
Images will be selected based upon the most engaging, moving, insightful, humorous and honest photos from the broadest range of submissions designed to document and chart the evolution of the royals through the years.
From pre-war, to present day, the project aims to elicit the people’s perspective of both era-defining events and everyday appointments, from:
- The Coronation & Jubilees
- Royal Weddings
- Funeral and births
- State occasions & openings
- Boats / Planes / Trains / Automobiles
- Pubs, Clubs and Theatres
- Foreign Tours
Submissions will then be passed onto a crack-team of leading editors and designers - who working through the night - will produce a stunning photo book in just 18 days using the latest print-on-demand technology from Photobox.
The result will be a Royal meta-selfie - a spectacular 160 page coffee table tome available to buy from the 8th May 2018, with all profits donated to charity.
