How I achieved my distinction

This is a great opportunity to see a range of recent successful Licentiateship, Associateship and Fellowship Distinctions print panels and hear about how they were conceived and prepared.

Vanessa Slawson FRPS will be on hand to provide guidance on the:

  • Distinctions process and about how to apply for your distinction.
  • Criteria and standards across all levels including L, A and F.
  • Explain the difference between the specialist categories.

Above all it will be an opportunity to hear first-hand from people who were successful - not necessarily the first time either - and how they found the experience of applying. You will then be able to view their panels close up.

We would love to hear from anyone who would like to share their experience in front of the audience. You will be able to talk for a maximum of 5 minutes and showcase your work to us. We would also be interested to hear from you if had failed in your distinction application initially and we would love to learn what you did to meet the standard. Free entry will be provided for those who wish to present your panel and talk to the audience. Arrangements must be made in advance and spaces are limited.

If you have recently (within the last 2 years) gained your distinction at L or A level and would like to take part please contact Lilian Hobbs LRPS email:

Doors open at 10:00am and following registration, we aim to start at 10:15am. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available but please bring your own lunch. We aim to finish around 4:15pm.

We are pleased to be joined again this year by Longridge Mount Cutting Systems

The Longridge family has been at the cutting edge of British engineering over many generations, be it involvement with Stephenson’s Rocket, British Engine Insurance or Mount Cutting Systems. - not sure how it works – see the Longridge website for full details and videos of it in use.
