Show Guide for Novices:
Photography Classes


These interpretations are based on guidance within;
The RHS Horticultural Show Handbook and
The NFWI On With The Show publication.
Both can be referenced at the Show Recorder's table.
Be aware the HIHS Rules for Exhibitors take precedence.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder so final judgement
of photography elements is always at the discression
of the individual judges.
