Help us capture life in a day!

Longest Day
Longest Day

The summer solstice is nearly upon us, and the Ilkeston Advertiser is looking to celebrate the longest day of the year with a snapshot of life in our amazing town.

On Friday, our news team plans to rise from their beds before sunrise, and retire to rest when the sun goes down.

During that time, we plan to capture – on video – a day in the life of an Ilkestonian.

From the sublime to the ridiculous, the humdrum to the extraordinary. We want you to pull out your smartphones and shoot a short 30-second clip of something happening in your life on the longest day.

We’re looking for scores of snapshots of life – not just scenery, but work, play, children, adults, old, young – you name it, we need YOU to film it, and email it to us –
