Photo competition winner 1963

The Past in Pictures.

John Mason entered and won an International Photography Competition at the FIDI convention in Madrid in 1963. A report by one of the Mason’s staff attending the conference at the time, Mrs. W. Griffiths, read as follows:

“In keen competition with leading international removals companies from 23 countries, John Mason Ltd of Liverpool have won the premier award for a novel publicity photograph.

All members of the Federation of International Removers (FIDI) were invited to submit photographs to trade interest including advertisement

s, for display at the Federation’s 12th Annual Congress in Madrid. A considerable number of interesting pictures were exhibited in the Congress hall, and delegates were asked to vote for the contributions in order of merit.

Mason’s unconventional entry, finally proclaimed the winner, was a studio photograph in splendid colour depicting a very attractive girl reclining gracefully upon a superb divan bed, in a packing case and ready for shipment to M.G.M Hollywood.

The announcement of the British victory was received with great enthusiasm, and a handsome presentation plaque was handed to Mr. & Mrs. Stanley Mason by the FIDI President at the closing banquet of the Congress on April 27th.

Copies of the picture, and the presentation plaque were shown to the British Association of Furniture Removers at their Southport Conference. Stanley Mason was heartily congratulated on being the winner of the competition organised in conjunction with FIDI’s annual Convention at Madrid.”
