The Big Picture

Whatever your skills with a camera, everyone in Birmingham is invited to get snap happy as part of an exciting new photography project to create a snapshot of the region and become part of an ambitious world record attempt.

The Big Picture is a new project run by Arts Council England West Midlands and supported by the BBC.

The idea of the project is to build a unique snapshot of the West Midlands, the people and communities you live in through your photos and stories of your life and locality.

This will help build a lasting insight to the social history and fascinating lives and loves of the residents of Birmingham.

Over the next six months the project aims to collect more than 95,000 individual images, which will be then used to create a giant, world record-breaking, photomontage.

The current world record for the largest photo mosaic measured 562.85 m² (6,058.46 ft²) and contained 94,392 individual photographs. It was created in Nurnberg, Germany, on 15 December 2007.

How can I get involved?

It doesn't matter what the subject of your picture is, as long as it is of something or someone that inspires you, from family and friends to your favourite place in Birmingham or even your football team.

To be part of The Big Picture and the world record attempt there are two ways you can submit your photos. Upload them directly onto the project website:
