Clear Channel today announced the winners of the ‘Picturing High Streets – Bus Stop Stories’ photography competition in partnership with Historic England and Photoworks.
Bus shelters are the unsung heroes of our towns, cities and high streets, yet they are the backdrop to many of our daily journeys and experiences. The competition aimed to uncover these bus stop stories while celebrating the humble yet ever-present bus stop, as part of Historic England’s ongoing ‘Picturing High Streets’ photography exhibition.
The 10 winning photographs will be showcased on Clear Channel’s digital Out of Home screens across England from today as part of a summer outdoor exhibition, running until 27 August. The photographs will also enter the Historic England Archive, the nation’s archive for England’s historic buildings, archaeology and social history.
With more than 140 entries from all around the UK, 10 winners were selected by a panel of experts, including:
Kelly Grist, Head of Design, Clear Channel UK
Josie Saunders, Audience Engagement Manager, Photoworks
Tamsin Silvey, Cultural Programme Curator at Historic England
Harriet Clarke, Creative Programmes and Campaigns Assistant, Historic England
Jonathan May, Director, Photoworks
