(By Telegraph—Press Association.) CHRISTCHURCH, August 15,

The annual photographic competition for the Bledisloe Cup, conducted this year by the Christchurch Photographic Society, was marked by the largest entries in the history of the event. The standard of exhibits was uniformly high, this being reflected in the evenness of the marking. The judges were Messrs. W. A. Johnstone, F. A. Shurrock, and J. J. Pollard. The champion print in the competition was "The Challenge," by F. L. Casbolt, of the Christchurch Photographic Society, with 97 points.

Results were:
Christchurch Photographic Society, 918 points, 1;
Wellington Camera Club, 828 points, 2;
Auckland Camera Club, 822 points, 3;
Dunedin Photographic Society, 796 points, 4;
Waikato Camera Club, 790 points, 5;
Gisborne Camera Club, 785 points, 6.
