A search has been launched to find the most talented vloggers in Preston.

St Gorge’s Shopping Centre is one of six UK regions taking part in a national competition to find Britain’s next top vlogging star, with aspiring YouTube stars being invited to showcase their talent.

The winner of Get Your Vlog On UK will receive a professional photoshoot and national ad campaign to promote their channel, as well as a £1000 cash prize and trip for two to New York.

The competition launched on Monday and is running through six major shopping centres throughout the UK.

General manager at St George’s Shopping Centre, Andrew Stringer, said: “We want as many aspiring filmmakers as possible to get involved. This is a one-off opportunity to showcase the amazing talent in our city and for one vlogger to win a career-changing prize.”

To take part, entrants will be asked to submit their channel URL through their local shopping centre website to show their current successes.

Six entrants across the six regions will be selected for the national final, with 12 entrants from across the six regions being recognised as local runners up. Over the course of three months, each of the six finalists will be given £100 to produce monthly content to be hosted on their own YouTube channel, with the overall national winner selected by an independent panel of judges.
