What are the requirement for LRPS and ARPS, and which level am I?

LRPS ( Licentiate ) – If you are not sure, then start with the LRPS, as you will need to show a good photographic competence in camera work, visual awareness, communication and presentation, as detailed in the Guidelines  

ARPS (Associate)  – You need to demonstrate a high technical competence as well as provide evidence of creative ability and the development of a personal style in either of the following categories, Fine Art, Natural History, Travel, Applied and Contemporary and Conceptual.

Please note : You can apply direct for the ARPS without being an LRPS, but we would recommend getting an LRPS first before working towards an ARPS, unless you have considerable photographic experience.

 If you are not sure, it’s much better to start with the LRPS and then work towards an ARPS.

Opening times

Attending for Advice: On arrival please register at the front desk and then place your panel safely on the desks to the side of the room. You will have the opportunity to receive guidance on your proposed panel and how to prepare it. The panel assessors will introduce the advisory day and show examples of successful panels. You will then be invited to display your images for comment. As a participant, you should bring your prints that you consider could form the basis for a panel, along with spares. You with either get content and technical or technical and written advice, depending who the advisors are on the day. Before you attend please make sure you have read the Distinctions Guidelines which contains valuable information on requirements, categories and criteria regarding the panels. This can be downloaded from the RPS website www.rps.org/distinctions. It is advisable to bring along a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 10 spare images. Spectators: Spectating is a very effective way to learn about the distinctions system and to see the advice given. Please do not bring any of your own images to the event on the off-chance that you can receive advice. Only panels that have been booked can be assessed.
