To celebrate the 90th birthday of the Devon Archaeological Society the Executive Committee invites you to partake in a photographic competition. Entries must be received by the end of June 2019.
All photographs should be related to Devon. Any archaeological
subject can be considered: from field monuments to architectural structures;
from excavations to artefacts ― and not forgetting the people involved! Trustees cannot enter.
Photographs can be submitted either digitally, or as prints. They
can be colour or monochrome. Prints should be 10”x8” (or near equivalent).
Multiple entries are allowed.
If sending digital images via email, these should be c. 4-5Mb. Larger files should be
submitted on disk or memory stick to the RAMM via the post, or hand delivered
to Berkeley House if attending a lecture/seminar or coffee morning. The Society
cannot guarantee to return prints, disks or memory sticks.
Please send digital attachments to the Newsletter Editor
