The Ron Harvey Landscape Trophy

An Interclub Competition in Memory of Ron Harvey ARPS

Ron Harvey was a long standing member of the Potters Bar & District Photographic Society. He served for very many years on the committee and was President for three separate – two year terms. On his death his widow, Reidun, donated a splendid trophy in the form of a Viking Ship to be used for an interclub competition and this competition celebrates his passion for landscape prints.
