LICENCIATESHIP (LBPS):

Open to all – anyone, whether you are a member of The Society or not (except    Bangladeshi applicants) may apply. This is usually the starting point. You need to show that you are good in Presentation, Technical Quality, Visual Awareness and Communication. Ten Photographic Work (Either Black & White or Color or Mixed of Both) should be submitted with the application. All submitted work should have variety in subject, well composition, quality of theme and its control by light. There are no rights or wrongs here, but ensure that if an image has been converted to monochrome, value has been added and you are not just presenting a colour image with its colour removed. Person, who is active in the filed of Photography at least for a period of Three (3) years with good Technical knowledge-eligible to apply. Evidence of at least 20 National or 20 International Acceptances will be major selection criteria. As often as it is mentioned, personal input to pictures is very important. It is an opportunity to show imagination and creativity. It can perhaps best be described as seeing rather than just looking; then making a selection, using the tools and techniques at your disposal, to eliminate distractions in order to let your subject dominate the picture. The resulting image will then be your picture, your interpretation and not simply a snapshot.
