Important Information: It could take up to 28 days before a panel member contacts you to arrange a date for your one2one. This is due to the high levels of demand on our resources.
Guidance: We recommend booking your one2one at least 4 months before your assessment date, this gives you not only the time to reflect on the comments made and make the possible changes.

The Distinctions department are once again providing an online one2one review service for 2022, which covers all distinction levels and all genres.

The one2one review service is for all members of the RPS who might be considering applying for a Distinction. It’s a great opportunity to show your proposed panel to an experienced and friendly RPS panel member, who will be able to discuss (online) the suitability for making a submission and advise on the current criteria. It is also for those that are at the beginning of the project and would like advice regarding content.

The advice will be up to an hour and, because of the two-way discussion, this will help build support and also create meaningful and personalised feedback, which will include clear steps of a way forward.

This advice is ideal for anyone who would like to book a day and time that suits them.

Your computer screen and that of the panel member will be linked via the Zoom app, which is free and easy to download. - https://zoom.us/download

Print, Digital or Book Format submissions

You can book a one2one review service for any levels or genres, choosing a format that suits you - Prints, Digital images or a Book. Once you have booked your one to one you will be asked to provide the advisor with digital versions of your proposed submission plus the Presentation Layout and a Statement of intent if you are booking an Associate or Fellowship.

Please note: All RPS panel members are un-paid volunteers, and we must respect their privacy. Once your one2one has concluded you must not contact panel members directly under any circumstances. This also helps protect your submission from any suggestion of undue influence. Any correspondence must be sent directly to the Distinctions department (andy@rps.org) who will contact the panel member on your behalf. Failing to comply could result in your one2one being withdrawn or your submission being reviewed.

On occasion, a second panel member may be in attendance during your one2one and the meeting may also be recorded. This can be for, but not limited to, training purposes. Any recordings made will be kept for internal use only and deleted when appropriate.
