The Royal Photographic Society Distinctions are recognised as the most prestigious in the photographic world. The Fellowship is the highest level of the Society’s Distinctions and only Associates of The RPS may apply for The Fellowship.
The fundamental essence of a Contemporary submission is conception. The panel members attach key importance to ideas and favours work by photographers who, through their photographic image making, wish to explore, define, illustrate or evaluate contemporary issues or their own particular vision of the world.
It is essential that you book onto an assessment day in order for your portfolio of work to be assessed for the FRPS.
There are only 5 places available each day for the FRPS Contemporary assessments so it is important to book ahead of time.
* It is essential to read the Fellowship Handbook before applying.
Please note: This assessment is confidential and therefore not open to the applicant or spectators.
