Photographic Competition 2004

The HOS Photographic Competition 2004 was held on 31st October during the Autumn Meeting at Capel Manor. As usual, classes were included for prints up to 5" x 7", prints up to A4 size and slides - see Rules and Classes. The prints could be either photographic or computer processed digital pictures.

This year the judge was Peter Jones.
