As World Capital of Co-operatives Rochdale, UK, is welcoming visitors from around the world during the International Year of Co-operatives. We want to capture all of this and more through your photographs – we want you to show what Rochdale means to you in 2012.
Your photo could be about you having a fantastic time with family or friends. It might be about exploring our countryside or parks, you might be taking part in a concert or watching someone else perform at a special event, or it could be something you’re doing at school or in your community. Whatever it is, it could become part of our 2012 story.
You, Me and Us is open to everyone – amateur or professional photographers, residents or visitors to the borough and anyone of any age!
