What we expect of an Associate
The notes for Licentiate submissions also apply to Associate images, but with the added requirement that we wish to see far more creative interpretation, better choice of location, more thought and faultless technique. We recommend participation in the Mentoring Programme to assist you in making an application. If in doubt please contact head office for advice.
Digital Submission for Associate - Guidelines
We are mindful of the needs of our members, who for the most part operate within the digital arena. Therefore, it makes perfect sense to open up the accessibility of submission for qualification in a more contemporary and practical manner by allowing panels of high quality digitally captured images to be presented.
To try and avoid any confusion in making a digital submission for your Associateship qualification we feel that it is essential to lay down a number of guidelines.
Print Submission for Associateship
A submission of twenty prints is required at 20x16” of a uniform size and flush mounted. In the case of an SWPP (ASWPP) submission your application should consist of either wedding or portrait images from at least ten commissions. (mixed wedding/portrait panels are not acceptable).
In the case of all other submission your application should be in a singular discipline i.e. Landscapes, pictorial, illustrative, commercial etc. If in doubt please contact head office for advice.
Further advice on submissions and the requisites for a successful Associate application is available via the Mentoring Programme.
