Report on Distinctions Advisory Day - NW Region
Date: 26th September 10
Location: Hough End, Manchester
Contact: Howard Hilton ARPS
Type: Distinctions Workshops
Region: North West
The above event was held at the Hough End, Manchester.
15 candidates presented their work for comments - 13 were for Licentiateship and 2 were for Associateship. Five people were on the waiting list and 47 observers attended the event.
The panels presented by the 15 candidates were both in print and digital form. Overall standard was considered to be good by the three panel members. These Distinctions Advisory Days are very popular and get fully booked well in advance.
It seems there is a need to arrange more such events and I hope to arrange another in near future.
The Regional Organiser presented Dr Zoe Hodson LRPS her licentiateship certificate.
My sincere thanks to the three panel members: Tom Dodd FRPS, Dr Anne Sutcliffe FRPS and Robert Hawkesworth FRPS.
I would also like to thank my Committee members (Jon Allanson LRPS, Sylvia Jones and Ben Gorman ARPS) and Howard Hilton ARPS for organising the event. Also I would like to thank Andy Moore LRPS, Distinctions Manager and Ben Fox, Distinctions Assistant for their help and support.
