The BBC needs artists like you!

Celebrate the Diamond Jubilee and capture the scene for the BBC

The BBC have been in touch with us here at the SAA in connection with the live television coverage of The Diamond Jubilee River Pageant, which is taking place on the Thames on Sunday 3rd June, and will be broadcast on BBC One.

As part of the programme, the BBC is inviting artists of all ages and mediums to join them on one of the bridges to paint or draw their interpretation of the pageant – which will be filmed during that afternoon.

If you would be interested in taking part, or would like to find out more, please contact Zoe on zoe.russell-stretten@bbc.co.uk as soon as possible, with your name, age, and location - and remember to include one or two examples of your work.

If you would like to be on one of the bridges, celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee through your creative talent, then don't hesitate to get in touch with Zoe!

Update:
The BBC would like to thank members of the SAA for the overwhelming and positive response to their call for Artists to participate in the Diamond Jubilee. They will be contacting all those that have already replied, but will be unable to respond to any further applications from 21st April.
