The Photographic Society of New Zealand (PSNZ) offer three levels of honours distinction; Licentiate (LPSNZ), Associate (APSNZ) and Fellowship (FPSNZ). Applicants must be members of PSNZ (or, in the case of a Licentiate, a member of an affiliated photographic society) and submit portfolios of Prints or Projected Images.
PSNZ Honours are not achieved merely by submitting a number of good images. Applicants are required to submit a portfolio. A portfolio is a presentation of photographic work in which the total has greater value than the sum of the individual parts.
The PSNZ Honours Board, which meets once a year in March comprises six voting members, appointed by Council to make recommendations on the granting of Honours for photographic achievement and Awards for service.
The current PSNZ Honours Board is:
- Bruce Girdwood FPSNZ (Chairman)
- Tracey Scott FPSNZ, AFIAP, FNZIPP
- Bevan Tulett FPSNZ
- Meg Lipscombe FPSNZ
- Stephanie Forrester APSNZ (Secretary)
This presentation is designed to give those considering an honours application some insight into what the Honours Board are looking for. Suitable for all members there is a lot to be learnt from understanding more about what makes up an excellent portfolio.
