LRPS Online Advisory Day - Spectator

Event info

The Southern Region is hosting an online distinction advisory day for Licentiate level (LRPS). Advice will be given for print panels, images for screen (IFS) and photobooks.

This event is for RPS members and non-members seeking advice on an LRPS application as well as spectators who want to gain an in-sight into obtaining a Distinction.

For guidelines on when and how to submit your images for advice, please scroll down.

Members and non-members can 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 the advisor, who is a current panel member, in a professional and friendly atmosphere.

As it is an online event, all images will be (re)viewed digitally. The advisor will give feedback on the intended print submissions meeting the criteria for licentiateship, but obviously cannot comment on the print quality.

There are 10 spaces for applicants, and 50 spaces for observers/spectators.
