Our recent qualifications submissions at The Photography Show was a huge success with a 100% pass rate. We saw 11 new Licentiates and 1 new Associate leave the show with smiles in their hearts at their well deserved achievements and new certificates to proudly hang on their walls.
Thank you to our dedicated qualifications team for the day, who continually strive to evolve our qualifications process, increasing our credibility, Chair of Associate & Fellowship Paul Cooper Hon FMPA, Chair of Licentiate Qualifications Eric Jenkins Hon FMPA, our qualifications examiners Kate Cooper FMPA, Hossain Mohdavi FMPA, Steve Walton FMPA, Desi Fonatine FMPA, and Lisa Visser FMPA, all of whom give their time freely to The Association and you our members. A huge thank you must also go to Collin Davies LMPA who stepped in last minute to cover Amanda and manage the administration side of qualifications, Amanda unfortunately couldn’t attend the show due illness, we missed her greatly!
