The second level of The Society’s Distinctions is the Associateship and it is a significant step up from Licentiateship. Candidates need to demonstrate a high standard of technical competence, creative ability and a personal style. The RPS also looks for complete control of the technical aspects of photography. It is awarded in particular categories.
See the RPS Distinctions Page for more details.
