Distinctions

Distinctions

The DPS offers three levels of Distinctions which set recognised standards of photographic achievement. They are akin to the Royal Photographic Society in the way they work. Our panel sits twice a year in May and November. Each panel sitting is usually followed by a workshop for those who are interested in entering work for a distinction at a future date. Attendance at either or both is free.

Portfolio Group

Portfolio Group

The Electronic Portfolio Group (EPG), gives members the opportunity and encouragement to submit digital images, and comment on each other’s for the purpose of both enjoyment and improving our photos in a safe and supportive environment.

Its FREE!! – There is no extra charge to belong to the EPG as it is covered by your DPS membership.

This is by no means a complete list and if you come across anything that we might be able to use then please let us know. We have a dedicated Equipment Co-ordinator who will discuss your needs with you and decided on the best equipment to use.
