Call For You To Celebrate On Video

Where will you be at that 'olympic handover moment' on the afternoon of 24 August when London becomes the next Summer host city? At Notting Hill Carnival? At the huge Buckingham Palace party with 40,000 others and, er, Will Young? Or watching (and possibly drinking) at one of London's open-air big screens or inside a pub?

Wherever you are, you are likely to see video clips of people having a bit of a laugh. Organisers of the big party are encouraging the public to post videos on Youtube of themselves "celebrating", which will be shown at the party itself and on big screens around the country. The best 10 will get free pairs of tickets to the party itself, so you can (almost) celebrate with Will Young in person.

There's a similar thing on Flickr for your photographs.

Londonist contributors are a dab-hand at all this stuff, of course, and we know your images on our Flickr Pool can be astonishingly good. So make sure you tag "Londonist" on any clips and images you submit so we get to see them too. We reckon you can celebrate better than Kelly Holmes does on the official video, though from what we hear the self-professed chocoholic would probably celebrate by scoffing a truckload of Creme Eggs.

Mind you, we don't think they're looking for you to upload that drunken film lurking on your mobile - the one of you exposing yourself on the street and performing your party trick with the kitchen utensils. HRH's front room is on The Mall, remember.
