The Royal Photographic Society Awards - Nominations Invited
Nominations are invited for the annual awards for 2011 from both members and non-members of The Society. The Annual Awards cover both the art and science of photography, with photographers, scientists, historians, curators and many others being honoured. The Society, an educational charity, is pleased that a new Education Award has been introduced for 2011.
The Awards cover all aspects of the Art and Science of Photography, as well as service to The Society. Previous Award winners in 2010 include Albert Watson Hon FRPS (Centenary Medal), Nobukazu Teranishi (Progress Medal and Honorary Fellowship) and Michael G Wilson OBE (RPS Award for Outstanding Service to Photography and Honorary Fellowship).
Next year, The Society introduces a new Award, The RPS Education Award, for outstanding achievement or sustained contribution in photographic education. This includes exceptional course development and management in combination with inspirational teaching or any other element that has progressed or improved photographic teaching and education.
Nominations are welcome from all areas of photographic education and may include the following elements:
Course design, either locally or nationally. This could include the design, development and, or, management of a series of courses within a particular educational establishment or the development of a national course or series of courses. An approach that challenges convention is an integral element.
Inspirational teaching. There is a multitude of elements to this from telling a story to making it happen! There is no pre-conceived formula but outstanding dedication, personal skills and creativity come to mind.
Whilst research, picture making, publication, (books, articles, papers etc) and media performance are relevant within education they relate to practice and are covered by other Awards.
For details, or further information on the awards and recent award recipients contact Jo Macdonald, Awards Manager on 01225 325721 or email@example.com.
