What’s it all about?

England and Wales has changed in a big way in the last 50 or so years, becoming home to people whose families have come from every corner of the world. Hundreds of languages are spoken across the country. Food and fashion have been shaped by communities with roots around the globe.

Every family has its favourite stories that are passed on from generation to generation. They are touching reminders that our lives today are built on the lives and loves of our parents and grandparents. All we want you to do is tell a simple story of how things have changed for your family over the years.

If you can do that in just two photos and a few paragraphs, then this is your chance to tell that story and win a great prize.

The ten winning stories will be published on the census website. Top prize for the overall winner is stack of Olympus photographic equipment, plus a compact digital camera each for the nine runners up.
