The interest in our new ROSL Photography Competition has been excellent, but did you know that this isn't the first time the organisation has run such a competition. Read an excerpt from a 1937 edition of Overseas, calling for submissions of photographs showing the coronation celebrations for King George VI.

Asking for submissions of celebrations both in London and overseas, the coronation of King George VI, ROSL's then-Patron, was a huge international celebration for the new King, and his consort, Queen Elizabeth.

The prizes of two and one guineas are some way off the prizes of £2,000 and £1,000 we are offering today! To find out more about this year's competition, which takes the theme of 'style' as its focus, take a look here.
