The PSNZ Honours Board comprises six voting members, appointed by Council to make recommendations on the granting of photographic Honours Distinctions and Awards for service.
The current PSNZ Honours Board is:
- Bruce Girdwood FPSNZ (Chairman)
- Paul Byrne FPSNZ
- Meg Lipscombe FPSNZ
- Helen McLeod FPSNZ, GPSA, ARPS
- Tracey Scott FPSNZ, AFIAP, FNZIPP
- Bevan Tulett FPSNZ
- Stephanie Forrester APSNZ (Secretary)
Once granted, successful applicants may use the Society’s letters after their name (e.g. LPSNZ, APSNZ, FPSNZ).
The Honours Board meets to consider applications for Honours once a year in March.
PSNZ Council appoints members to the Honours Board for three-year terms and they have the option of offering themselves for re-appointment at the end of their term. While conscious of the need to inject fresh thinking from time to time, the Society purposely maintains a high degree of stability in the membership of the Honours Board to ensure that a consistent threshold of assessment and approval is maintained.
