Outstanding Service

The award for Outstanding Service recognises major sustained, outstanding and influential contributions to the advancement of Photography and/or Imaging in their widest meanings.  To be eligible candidates must have made a contribution that has had a significant influence on the sustained advancement or enhancement of photography or imaging.  Such influence may, but not necessarily, have been through commerical activities. 

This award is to be made occasionally to a notable person who has contributed over a significant period of time to the global world of photography.  Recipients might include communicators, directors of museums, picture libraries or galleries, archivists, senior administrators, CEOs or team leaders of manufacturing or service organisations that have advanced imaging.

It carries an Honorary Fellowship of the RPS.
