We launched the campaign yesterday asking readers to capture through words, pictures or video the reasons why Norfolk is such a special place to live or visit.

And already Norfolk is... has received its first celebrity endorsements.

Television presenter Jake Humphrey and Olympic boxer Anthony Ogogo have both made their Norfolk is... choices.

Mr Humphrey, who grew up in south Norfolk and attended Framingham Earl High School in Poringland, simply said: 'Norfolk is... the place on the planet I love the most.'

While Ogogo, originally from Lowestoft but who spends much of his time in Norwich, said: 'Norfolk is... fish and chips on the sea front.'

But readers have also been sending us their contributions in lots of different ways.
