copy of BJP for 1925,
Competition for Apprentices
The ESPP Meeting on 6 October 1924 heard a proposal that there should be a competition for apprentices in January 1925:
"Each apprentice would be required to take four photographs within a time limit of half an hour, in an independent studio, of a model supplied.
The photographs would be taken on half plate or film, using electric light.
One mounted print and negative would be submitted to the competition. No retouching would be allowed."
Swan Watson offered a First Prize of £2 2s. The Society offered a Second Prize of £1 1s.
