Photobooks

Our new Genre for Licentiate, Associate and Fellowship applications

From Licentiate to Fellowship, from Natural History to Fine Art applicants have for a long time been able to use a book as a means of presentation, but in this genre the photography led photobook is the genre itself.

All elements will be considered that make up your photobook submission, from the images to the colour of the text. What form of photobook you present is under your creative control.

Please note: Priority booking is reserved for Members of the RPS. Non-Members can apply from 10th July 2021.
