I am a member of the Royal Photographic Society in the UK and have been awarded a Licentiate of The Society (LRPS). Above is my successful panel of ten images.
From the Society´s webpage:
The Royal Photographic Society Distinctions are recognised as the most prestigious in the photographic world. They offer a range of Distinctions and Qualifications that members and non-members can apply for.
LRPS (Licentiateship of The RPS) – images of a high standard of photographic execution – demanding but achievable for most dedicated photographers. Applicants must show variety in approach and techniques but not necessarily in subject matter.
