1912

 Open Exhibition

The Annual Open Exhibition of Pictorial Photography and Art Union was held from 24 February until 9 March 1912 at EPS premises, 38 Castle Street

There were 227 entries, 61 more than in 1911.  The exhibition was praised in the press for its general high level of merit, but Transactions of the EPS [ March 1912] described the judges as adopting a most conservative policy.  They awarded only five medals, three of these being for the Lantern Slide section.
