Works of Distinction - May 2009
An exhibition of prints from recent Licentiate, Associate and Fellowship submissions. The first time The Society has staged an exhibition of this kind, it represents an exciting opportunity to witness the quality and diversity of work awarded Society Distinctions at all levels.
This first showing of selected prints from recent Distinctions marks an exciting departure for The Society. The result of an innovative collaboration between the Exhibition and Distinction departments, it looks set to become a regular event in The Society’s calendar. It is hoped that, once it has finished its run at Fenton House, the regions will be able to use the exhibition to showcase the quality of The Society’s Distinctions, especially in cases where their members’ prints have been selected.
The prints on show come from the RPS digital library of Distinction submissions. Ten examples from each level of Distinction have been selected, the aim being to show the excellent and diverse work that is presented to the panels, and the standard to be achieved; as well as inspiring those who are thinking of applying for a Distinction.
Whatever stage you have reached with your photography, from relative beginner to experienced professional, RPS Distinctions offer a focus and a goal toward which you can work. To be awarded one of The Society’s Distinctions, you need to prove your abilities as a photographer, either by submitting a portfolio or, at Licentiate and Associate level, through achievement of a Society-recognised photographic qualification.
Licentiateship of The Society is awarded for competence in practical photography. It is open to all members. Non-members may also apply, but if successful, the Distinction will not be approved until after they become members.
The Associateship is awarded for a high degree of proficiency, and demonstration of high technical and visual competence. It is open to all members. Non-members may also apply but, as with Licentiate, the Distinction will not be approved until they become members.
Fellowship, The Society’s highest Distinction, recognises original work and outstanding ability in a specialist field. It is open to RPS Associates, and to Fellows of the British Institute of Professional Photography while, even if they are non-members, those with an international reputation may apply direct, based on their cvs, references, publications and exhibitions.
Everyone involved in the Distinctions process wants you to succeed. Whatever the outcome, we want you to feel that you have progressed in your photography and learnt from the process. But, most importantly, we want you to enjoy the whole experience.
My thanks, for their positive feedback and helpfulness in contributing, to those members whose work has been included in the exhibition.
Benjamin Fox ARPS, Distinctions Assistant
