Currently chuffed to bits.
Since late last year I've been trying to put together a volume of work for the Royal Photographic Society for a distinction at Associate level in Nature Photography. The distinction panel sits twice a year in March and September and today was the day. I couldn't be there in person and had to supply my images as high resolution Tiff files for projection rather than framed mounts. Anyway, I've just had an E-mail from the RPS HQ in Bath to tell me the distinction panel have recommended my work for award at associate level subject to ratification by the RPS board committee.
I'm a very happy bunny :-)
Always knew we were in the presence of greatness lol.
Congratulations my friend well deserved..do we call you Sir now lol.

Many congratulations Andrew. My jaw always drops when I see the quality of the photographs you post on here and I think to myself "how does he do it"? Very well deserved award.
Not sure what a kilkenny is but it sounds good to me.
Many congrats, Andrew - well deserved!
Congratulations Andrew and well deserved - your photos are fantastic and enjoyed by us all - well done. I don't know what a kilkenny is either - for another quiz?! Can hazard a guess for that one:-)
A Kilkenny is a sort of Irish shandy but a little stronger :-)
Grandpaddy will know

Congratulations Andrew, that's brilliant news. I'm sure the Kilkenny will go down a treat if you can stop smiling long enough to drink it. Cheers!
