Drag to set position!

Yahoo UK and Ireland Media Relations ADMIN May 17, 2011
The winner is...

Bethany was very excited to watch the Royal Wedding by Louisa Who?

Our judge, Yahoo! Royal Wedding Ambassador and former BBC Royal Correspondent Jennie Bond chose the photo because "not only is it beautifully shot, with a great eye for colour and for humour, it also sums up a key part of what The People’s Royal Wedding Album was all about – becoming a historical document for future generations like Bethany and showing the true story of what people did for the wedding.”

It was a really tough job as we were so overwhelmed by all the entries, and so many fantastic ones, so thank you again to everyone who has submitted!

We're still open to ideas for what to do to share all these photos with a wider audience, so please do let us know your ideas!

Thanks again and much love,
The PRWA team

Group Description

This group is ‘The People’s Royal Wedding Album’– a group set up by Yahoo! that aims to capture the people’s take on the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Whether it’s photos of celebrations down the pub, your pet in royal regalia, camped in a sleeping bag on the Mall, a fantastic knitted souvenir, such as the wonderful blanket stitched by Mrs. Twins that makes up the header for this group or getting away from it all on a far away beach, Yahoo!’s ‘People’s Royal Wedding Album’ wants to capture it all, hopefully with a sense of humour, for future generations to laugh and point at.

This group is open to everyone – and we'd love to see what people outside the UK make of the Royal Wedding. However, if you're resident in the UK, Royal Wedding fever has made us doolally and we are offering a £5000 ‘honeymoon’* as a prize for the best snap. Upload your photo by the 3rd of May, and Yahoo!’s Royal Wedding expert Jennie Bond will pick a winner.

So, start sharing your barely-concealed monarchical fervour, tell your friends and upload your photo today
