The Ribble Steam Railway are running a photography competition for all you budding photographers out there.

The theme is transport (walking and horse riding are excluded) and the shot should encompass Lancashire and transport.

The deadline is September 1st 2009. Preston Blog will be publishing the best entries.

Here’s the details:

We’re looking for photos that illustrate the varied transport scene in the County of Lancashire. Submissions should contain a form of vehicular transport (so no walking or horse-riding) from bicycles to trains, canal boats, buses, etc. More than one type can be included in the image, but there should be something that defines the area as being Lancashire. Be creative when composing the shots!
