Congratulations to Shafiq Khan, the winner of our Preston photography competition.

In the competition, we were looking for stunning pictures that capture iconic landmarks or places in or around Preston and Shafiq definitely captured this with his stunning image of Preston Docklands.

Our runner up was Marty Hopkirk, with his image that we felt encaptured Preston with its emblem and really runs with identifying the local town.

We'll be showcasing these pictures on our social pages in the coming weeks.
