The Great Exhibition 2012: Talbot needs your Help!

The Great Exhibition 2012 will capture the true Spirit of Great Britain. With its origins based in the original 1851 Great Exhibition and the Festival of Britain 1951, it highlights and celebrates all that is “Great” about this country.

In 1851 we competed against the world in the exhibition of all nations with Britain as Host Nation In 2012 as the Host Nation for the largest sporting competition in the World and the platform from which the Queen will celebrate her Diamond Jubilee, 2012 truly is the year to remind ourselves and rejoice in all that is “Great” about Great Britain in the 21st Century.

This is an opportunity for us to promote our industries, our creative talents, our tourism and the people that make Britain “Great”. By actively encouraging participation online, we are asking people to celebrate all of our British achievements, in addition to the planned celebrations for sports & art that have been announced for 2012.

Fox Talbot, as of today, is only ranked 120th, with only 8 votes!, behind individuals like Pippa Middleston (at 68th!) and Simon Cowell (105th). So, he desperately needs your help. Vote for him here.
