If you are passionate about Preston and good behind a camera lens, Preston City Council has a great opportunity for someone to supply a suite of images of Preston to be used as part of the Welcome Back funding project.


The council are inviting proposals to provide them with a comprehensive suite of images as part of this campaign that can be used by the Council and partners to support the visitor economy and welcome people back to the city.

Councillor David Borrow, Cabinet member for planning and regulation, said: “We are pleased to be able to offer this opportunity – supporting the city in its phased reopening and recovery period with high quality images that showcase all that Preston has to offer. 

“I have seen so many fantastic photographs of Preston shared on social media by local photographers and am confident we will be spoilt for choice.

“You could be part of this exciting campaign by capturing Preston’s iconic cityscape, parks, streets and architecture. Your images could be the ones featured across the city for all to see, and I can’t wait to see it all unfold.”

Full details are available on the council’s website. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday 21 July.
