Due to popular demand we are once again allowing members to submit more than one application at a time. This might change if we receive too may applications so please be sure to always check the latest Rules & Regulations, as found on the website. This is true not only for the number of panels allowed but also for any other requirements – don’t rely on old documents – always check the website for the latest.
In today’s world we all tend to want to do everything too quickly and Honours applications are no exceptions – so a few words of advice:
- Ask for advice from members who have experience in the honours process, whether they are honours judges or applicants – experience does help.
- Unless you have plenty of honours standard images it is not a good idea to apply for more than one Honour at a time as you might spread your images too thinly over a variety of applications.
- Don’t bypass the LPSSA unless you are really confident that you work is up to APSSA standard – remember that the difference between the different levels of application is not just an increase in the number of images. Be sure that you have reached the higher level before applying.
- The same is true when moving on to a higher honour – the judges are not just looking for more of the same.
A number of applicants would have been disappointed that they did not get the minimum number of credits to allow them to continue and are no doubt threatening to give up. The reason we have a minimum requirement is actually to save you disappointment when after 4 attempts you still haven’t succeeded. This way you have time to regroup, consider those images that were successful and work towards more of that standard.
It is hard work but it is all worth it when you get that welcome email.
Thank you also to the whole Honours team for all their hard work.
