The Royal Photographic Society Distinctions are recognised as the most prestigious in the photographic world. The Fellowship, is the highest level of the Society’s Distinctions and only Associates of The RPS may apply.



Submissions in this category will consist of photography produced to fulfil the creative vision of the photographer in expressing and sharing perceptions or emotions.

All applications for the Fellowship Distinctions of The Society will be assessed against the criteria set out in the Fellowship outline document. The following criteria are in addition to, not instead of, those criteria.

  • Images can be produced either solely in the camera, or may be subsequently creatively altered by the photographer.
  • Each image in the submission may be based on one or more original photographic images.
  • The applicant must own the copyright to, and be the creator of, all the photographic elements in the images submitted. The Society reserves the right to view the original files.
  • There is no restriction on the subject matter or techniques used. However, your portfolio should present a cohesive visual statement on your chosen subject or subjects, communicating a clear personal vision or style, and sharing a sense of design, emotion, mood or meaning which encourages the viewer to look beyond the subject.
  • Submissions may be based on a single or a small number of themes or techniques, although this is not essential.
  • Assessment of your application will include whether it meets the criteria set out in your statement of intent, and whether the techniques used are appropriate and suitably controlled.

All applications for the Fellowship Distinctions of the Society will be assessed against the criteria set out in the Distinction Guidelines.

It is essential that you book onto an assessment day in order for your portfolio of work to be assessed.

It is important to book ahead of time. To book, please complete and return a current FRPS application form. On receipt your assessment will be booked and you’ll receive an email of confirmation.
