30th Anniversary Photographic Competition
As part of its 30th Anniversary celebrations, Northamptonshire Archaeological Society (NAS) is holding a modest photographic competition. Members of NAS, of other local societies in Northamptonshire and anyone else with an involvement or interest in the archaeology of Northamptonshire is invited to enter. The closing date for entries is 1st January 2005.

Competition Theme
The competition theme is a record of any aspect of archaeology within Northamptonshire in the last 30 years. This can involve field survey, excavation, post excavation work, finds, historic landscape, historic buildings, industrial archaeology, a NAS or other local society event or activity or indeed any aspect of the wide field of archaeology as practised in the historic county of Northamptonshire.

The photographer whose photograph best represents the competition theme, as judged by the NAS Committee, will receive a cash prize of £50. A second prize of £25 will also be awarded. In additional two junior prizes (aged 16 or under), each of £20, will be awarded.
