The Jubilee Time Capsule project open for submissions
The Jubilee Time Capsule is a unique online archive that aims to tell the people’s history of the last 60 years since Queen Elizabeth ascended to the throne. To mark 60 years of The Queen's reign the Diamond Jubilee celebrations will centre around an extended weekend in 2012 on 2, 3, 4 and 5 June.

The project is asking people from across the globe to share their memories of the past six decades to help build history. The aim is to gather at least one memory for each day of Her Majesty’s reign, some 22,000+ days from 6th February 1952 to 6th June 2012.

Managed by The Royal Commonwealth Society (RCS), an education charity with a wide portfolio of projects which seek to engage people, especially young people, in global affairs and develop their skills through a number of different schemes, the Jubilee Time Capsule has the support of Buckingham Palace and the BBC. The UK Department for Culture, Media and Sport is also supporting it as one of the Diamond Jubilee’s digital projects.

There are currently 13,748 items to explore, from 4,724 people in 37 different countries, with entries from people of all ages, nationalities, cultures telling stories about world events, local communities and family life.

Just launched is a new way to discover all this content in the Jubilee Time Capsule iPad app. The app allows users to search and discover content entered into the Jubilee Time Capsule, in a collage view. The app supports the same media (video, audio, images and text) as the web site.

Users can randomly browse the entries, or search for specific themes, places, people or topics. The app is free to download from the Apple Store.
