About Crown Awards and Distinctions
National Exhibitions that are members of the British Photographic Exhibitions (BPE) offer a Crown Award system designed to enable successful exhibition photographers to gain additional recognition.
Exhibitors are invited to aggregate their acceptances in the affiliated exhibitions and, upon reaching the accepted aggregate, to apply without charge for a Crown Rating Award. Each successful applicant for an award will receive a Certificate and a Ribbon and will be able to use the letters acknowledging their award after their name.
BPE1* Crown Award – 25 points
BPE2* Crown Award – 50 points
BPE3* Crown Award – 100 points
BPE4* Crown Award – 200 points
BPE5* Crown Award – 300 points
Those who achieve the top crown award rating BPE5* are then invited to aggregate acceptances and awards in the member exhibitions and upon reaching the accepted aggregate to apply for an Associateship (ABPE) or Fellowship (FBPE). Successful applicants will receive a Certificate and Medal and will be able to use the letters acknowledging their award after their name.
“The BPE exists to encourage photographers to enter exhibitions and to recognize successful entrants via the issue of the Crown Awards photographic distinctions. Exhibition members share ideas, promote each other’s exhibitions and generally work together to promote competitive photography".
The BPE site aims to inform photographers about the exhibitions that are part of the BPE circuit including the dates they occur, whom to contact for each exhibition and where possible, provide downloadable information such as entry forms and promotional posters.
There is no charge for any of these services, except for the individual exhibition entry fees payable to BPE club exhibitions which you wish to enter.
