2016 was a big year for the UK, a big year for planet Earth. Brexit happened, Trump arrived, and a long list of the great and good from British popular culture, sadly, left us to face 2017 alone. Change is good though…right?
 
We want you to sum up what Britain means to you, using a simple postcard format – the original ‘social media’. From the faded glamor of seaside towns to the hustle and bustle of city crowds, from woodland beauty and suburban snooty to village greens and slot machines – this is Britain in 2017!
 
Inspired, moved, angered, or even outraged by what you see? It’s time to give us your take. Celebrate all that’s positive in your local community. Rage against the establishment. Share a gorgeous sunset. Tackle social issues head on. Lament days gone by. Big up developments in tech. Give Britain a loving kiss. Give this sceptred isle a good kicking. 
 
Choose Brexit. Choose grime. Choose goalkeepers eating pies…it’s your call.
