The Royal Photographic Society Distinctions are recognised as the most prestigious in the photographic world. There are three levels, the Associate is the second level of The Society’s Distinctions and is a significant step up from the first level, the Licentiateship. The third level, the Fellowship, is the highest level of the Society’s Distinctions and only Associates of The RPS may apply.
The panel members are looking for clear evidence of a personal vision or style which should convey a sense of design, emotion, mood or something meaningful which encourages the viewer to look beyond the subject
It is essential that you book onto an assessment day in order for your portfolio of work to be assessed for the ARPS.
There are only 26 places available each day for the ARPS Visual Art assessments so it is important to book ahead of time.
Spectator Tickets will become available to book below 4 weeks before the date of this assessment. Seating priority is given to applicants. Please be aware that there may on occasions only be very limited spaces available.
* It is essential to read the Associateship Handbook before applying.
