PhotoBox needs YOU!

March 21, 2012
PhotoBox is a force to be reckoned with but we simply couldn’t be this awesome without you. You guys make PhotoBox what it is – passion, emotion, photos, life’s little moments captured in a click, you guys are our stars of the show! Enough of the gushing – what do you want PhotoBox? Well, I’m sure you all know that Facebook will be saying ‘Out with the old and in with the new’ next week and giving its pages a little face lift. That’s right my lovelies, from the 30th March, our PhotoBox page will get its glad rags on and do what it does best – dress to impress with you and your photos taking centre stage. So your mission, should you accept it, is to get creative and invent your own interpretation of our beloved PhotoBox star. Pay homage to 24LIVE- draw the star, make it with spaghetti if you must, make it out of paper mache, cut it out of newspaper. Whatever you do, be fun, be creative and be you. All we ask is that you make it green, there’s a person holding or posing with it and it resembles our logo, then just post it on our Facebook wall 🙂 The closing date for entries is Wednesday 28th of March. Are you game? Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Face Britain becomes a right Royal affair

March 16, 2012
Yesterday we got dolled up and spent the afternoon being typically British, drinking tea, eating shortbread and curtseying to our future Queen and their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. Their Royal Highnesses attended the Dulwich Picture Gallery for an event supporting Great Art Quest, a project run by The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts. The visit also highlighted Children & the Arts’ Face Britain project, which has been brought to life by none other than our very selves. During their visit to the gallery, Their Royal Highnesses chatted to the kids, artists and storytellers involved with the project, and heard from teachers about how the project has benefited both learning and personal development in children.What were they like I bet you want to know? Well, I can’t tell you how they take their tea or if they watch Eastenders, but they were awesome and they have a real passion for the arts. Also, Kate’s dress put mine to shame, darn! It gave us all an amazing buzz to know that what we’ve been doing for Face Britain and all this hard work has really paid off and made a difference in so many kids and seeing their beautiful, smiling faces when they got to show off their work just made us feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The deadline for entries is just fifteen days away so get the kids involved and let them be part of history. Their sunny portraits will be made into a mosaic of Her Majesty The Queen and projected on Buckinbgham Palace for three consecutive nights in April and displayed live onto screens up and down the country. For more information on how to get involved click here.
