  Honour Roll
 
Photographic Honours
www.a-p-s.org.au
 
The Australian Photographic Society has an Honours system that recognises the skills,
effort and achievement of APS members. As a member of the International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP), APS also administers applications for FIAP’s honour system,
FIAP Distinctions, on behalf of all Australian applicants, including those that are not
APS members.

Both organisations have honours that are awarded for photographic excellence and also honours for service to photography.

 
APS Honours (Skill)
 
Licentiate (LAPS) This Honour is intended to allow the advanced club photographer of reasonable proficiency to obtain recognition for their efforts.
 
   
Associate (AAPS) This Honour is intended as a goal, offering a substantial challenge to the accomplished photographer. The standards required are deliberately kept high but not so high as to preclude active Australian and overseas photographers from applying.
 
 
 
   
Fellow (FAPS) This Honour is for a high achievement by an exhibitor established as a successful Exhibitor in International Exhibitions. There would be little value in a Fellowship bassed on anything lower than the outstanding international exhibition record reasonably attainable by our top exhibition photographers.
 
 
 
 
Master (MAPS) This Honour is for the consistently successful international exhibitor who has built an extensive record of success in International Exhibitions. It is intended for the top photographers who continue to exhibit at the highest level after having established their standing as an international exhibitor by gaining FAPS.
   
Grand Master (GMAPS) This Honour is for photographers who have gained MAPS and are continuing to have success in international exhibitions in a wide range of cultures.

FIAP Distinctions (Honours)
 
 
AFIAP The distinction "Artist FIAP" (AFIAP) is the first artistic distinction that can be obtained. It is awarded to photographic artists whose artistic qualities, technique and production of work have been acknowledged through the participation in international salons under FIAP Patronage.
 
 
 
   
EFIAP The distinction "Excellence FIAP" (EFIAP) is awarded to photographic artists who, apart from having excellent techniques, have a significant number of their work often been accepted in many international salons under FIAP Patronage.
 
 
 
   
EFIAP Bronze In order to honour photographic artists who, after having received the EFIAP distinction, continue to actively participate in international salons under FIAP Patronage and by so helping to promote photography.

What is FIAP?
 
A camera club is a group of photographers, local to a particular area (usually a village, town or sometimes a county). Often camera clubs are part of a National Federation, which organises competitions, distinctions etc. across it’s member clubs. In Australia's case,
it's APS (Australian Photographic Society).

FIAP is a federation of National Federations. It is a global/international photographic body. Like the local clubs and national federations, it hosts competitions and offers distinctions, but unlike the local clubs and national federations, entrants are now competing and being measured against photographers from across the world. FIAP stands for Federation Internationale de l’Arte Photographique.
