Awards

The Society's Awards are made annually to individuals who have made significant contributions to the art and science of photography and across all areas of imaging.

The Society has given Awards to international photographers and those working in photography since 1878 when the Progress Medal was first introduced. They are presented annually and cover fifteen categories from photographers through to those working as photographic scientists, curators and educators.

”It is a real honour to be awarded the Progress Medal that has previously been awarded to true greats.“

”As a photographer you tend to work a lot in isolation, especially in the type of work I do, so it means a lot to get recognition from your peers. Receiving an RPS Fellowship means the world.“
