LRPS

Licentiate of of The Royal Photographic Society.

The RPS offers three levels of Distinctions which set recognised standards of achievement throughout the world.  Both members and non-members can apply for Distinctions (non-members will need to join The Society if they gain a Distinction). We recommend you apply for the LRPS first, unless you're an experienced photographer.

LRPS (Licentiate of The RPS) requires images of a high standard of photographic execution.  It is demanding but achievable for most dedicated photographers. Applicants must show variety in approach and techniques but not necessarily in subject matter.

Below you will find the guidelines for applying for an LRPS as well as the application form.  You can also see examples of successful panels and find Advisory Day and Assessment dates.

If you would like help with your application please contact lrps@rps.org or call +44 (0)1225 325760.
