Advisory Days and other events supporting RPS Distinctions

RPS Regions London 01 CMYK
Distinctions Advisory Days organised by London Region

London Region is very supportive of the Distinctions process, which is at the heart of the RPS for many. To find out more about the Distinctions process overall, please follow the Qualifications tab here 

In the London Region, we currently hold at least four Advisory Days for LRPS and ARPS each year - one per quarter and we expect this to continue into 2022.  Booking into an Advisory Day as a Spectator is a very good way to learn about the distinctions system and will gives you the opportunity to watch current panel members reviewing portfolios in a professional and friendly manner, something you might like to consider.  

We usually hold one FRPS (Fellowship) Advisory Day each year and we will let you know if such a day is planned for 2022..  (Fellowship Advisory Days are held in camera, and no spectators are allowed)

We also hold Distinctions Study Sessions every month.  These are informal sessions are informal and may include an introductory session for those who want to do their LRPS or ARPS but don't quite know how or where to start as well as providing a forum for those who have projects  under way and seek advise - but are not far enough advanced to do an Advisory.

In 2022, we plan to hold Distinctions Study Groups Monthly on the 2nd Thursday evening of the month:  you can see a list of Advisory Days and Distinctions Study Groups planned by London Region by clicking this link. (Note: may not appear in date order.)

Our annual member exhibition (LRMPE 2024) is all ready to be installed and opens on Wednesday 20th March until Sunday 24th with the Open Evening on Thursday 21st march at the Espacio Gallery Bethnal Green Road.  There will be 104 mounted prints by 104 London Members plus a rolling digital disply of "second" images.  Other images from some of London Region's activities will also be on display along with a rehanging of the RPS London - CafeArt Photography Mentoring Group Exhibition recently shown in Outney Library.  More details here.

All of our regular monthly meetings are being held on the usual dates; N London and Bookworms are hybrid meetings (in-person and online); SW London and SE London are now in-person only.  We have introduced a London Zoom (online only) for those who cannot easily reach the three regular locations. click here for details of all our events.
