Harris launches Preston bus station photographic competition
The Harris, in collaboration with In Certain Places, invite photographers of all ages and abilities to submit photographs of Preston Bus Station. These will be exhibited in the Harris on the stairway up to the first floor, as part of our celebration of Preston Bus Station in its 50th year.
Your photographs can be of Preston Bus Station taken at anytime over the last 50 years and may include the architecture, inside and outside, or anything else that has shaped your experience of this internationally recognised Preston landmark. You will also have the opportunity to sell your work if you wish to do so.
Cllr Peter Kelly, Executive Member for Culture & Leisure at Preston City Council said,
“This is a fantastic opportunity for keen photographers everywhere to display their work at the Harris which has been inspired by Preston Bus Station. We encourage anyone with photographs of the station taken anytime within the last 50 years and that are special to them, to share them with our visitors by entering the competition.”
There are four categories in the competition, each with a prize of a photo printing voucher supplied by the competition sponsor, Jessops in Preston for the winners.
- Photography winner (18 and over) – £50
- Photography winner runner-up (18 and over) – £25
- Photography winner (18 and under) – £50
- Photography winner runner-up (18 and under) – £25
A panel of judges will select the prize winners, which will be announced during the ‘Beautiful and Brutal’ exhibition opening on Friday 20th September.
