REAP (Research)

You submit written rather than photographic work for the Research, Education and Application of Photography category (REAP).

A REAP Distinction gives applicants the chance to develop and share knowledge about aspects of photography. You can use images to illustrate it and the submission could be a website, an essay or an academic paper.

Work is usually scholarly in nature, the Panel has identified a number of popular categories for submissions:

  • The application of photography in education
  • Research on a photographer who merits a biographical treatment
  • Aspects of the history of photography
  • The use of photography to access history
  • The conservation and restoration of photographs and photographic materials
  • Photography as an aid to conservation
  • Curatorial accomplishments such as archival content management or photographic exhibitions.

Below you will find the guidelines for applying for a REAP qualification.
