Licentiate Advisory Day

Event info

What are Distinctions Advisory days?
Advisory days are organised by the RPS regions, so members of the public can either get advice on their body of work before applying for a Distinction, or attend as an observer to learn about the Distinctions process and see what advice is given.

If you do book for advice you, will have the opportunity to discuss your body of work with a current panel member in a professional but friendly atmosphere.


What are Distinctions?
Applying for our Distinctions takes you on a personal journey, exploring not just “technical competence” but how you want to develop as a photographer, how others react to our work, and what we want to say as a photographer. Therefore, we ask for a body of work that shows not just the content of the images but also the intent of the photographer. Essentially, photography has a purpose, and that is to explain, challenge, inspire and tell stories. Our distinctions make us better photographers in that sense, telling our own stories.
