Awarded RPS Licentiateship Distinction
06/11/08The Royal Photographic Society, founded in 1853, is a prestigious international photographic society. It has long been recognised for the promotion and maintenance of high photographic standards around the world and has established itself worldwide through its programme of touring exhibitions, events and special interest groups.
The awarding of Distinctions is fundamental to the Society's promotion of standards of excellence, universally respected by amateur and professional photographers alike to whom RPS membership is open.
In order to gain my Distinction I submitted a portfolio of ten images for approval by a qualified panel of Fellows of the Society which was fortunately successful.
The society offers applicants the opportunity to observe the assessment process in progress and gives applicants a chance to hear a critique from one of the panel whilst each member decides on their recommendation.
It was a highly rewarding and informative experience which I am delighted to have completed.
A number of the images I submitted appear within my galleries, but the Licentiateship panel images are available to view together as a whole on the RPS website by clicking here.
