Fancy having your own fashion–mag style shoot, seeing your portrait up in lights and helping street children, just by taking part? Between 8 to 11 October, Aviva will give up to 400 people a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be made up like the stars and snapped by two of the world’s most renowned fashion photographers, Clive Arrowsmith and Jillian Edelstein, as part of its “You are the Big Picture” campaign.
From Saturday 8 to Tuesday 11 October, the Aviva Big Picture Photo Studio returns to Theatre Square on the Southbank. Up to 100 people each day will have the opportunity to be photographed by Arrowsmith or Edelstein – who have photographed celebrities and personalities as diverse as Kate Moss, Nelson Mandela, Yves Saint Laurent and P Diddy. If you're lucky enough to get in, you will receive a copy of your portrait and then see it projected onto the National Theatre later that evening.
If you can't make it down to the Southbank for your close up, submit your beautiful face and a personal message to the project at www.facebook.com/aviva. Aviva will donate £2 to Save the Children Fund for every photo uploaded. What's more, yours could be selected to be projected onto the National Theatre flytower (and if it is, you'll be told when that will happen, so you can be watching - or you can watch it live on their YouTube channel).
All the money raised goes towards Save the Children Fund's global Street to School programme, which helps street children into education and training. The aim is to fund two mobile learning centres in communities in India where hard-to-reach children are in need of basic education and counselling. Each centre will target up to 1,000 out-of-school children.
Watch out! Projections begin on 6 October on London's National Theatre for 10 nights.
