Hiya -

I applied to receive my Craftsman. The Awards & Degrees ceremony is Tuesday night, but I am unable to attend IUSA.

How will I know that my degree application was approved and the degree is official? Do I need to wait until I receive my medallion in the mail ?

Thanks for your help.

Joe - it's specifically against the rules to announce it before it's official - that's one of the things that can get you turned down. I just want to play it safe. I'm just trying to figure out when it's "official" so I can blab away. :)

Council approves degrees Monday morning at the Council meeting.

Hi George
Apparently they will be posting it when they finish some updating, but I spoke with Rodney there today and he confirmed that it is official, I did get my MEI degree. YEA me. Thanks for the offer. If you can send me a pdf scan of the program that would be great. I wanted to go but the demons of finance declined to fund the trip.

What percentage of members are certified master craftsman ?
I am getting my masters and want some info for my press release.

Jim, I'm not sure if this would be an accurate number or not but if I go to the loop and search for members with the criteria of Master of Photography, Craftsman and CPP, I get 627 results. Out of 25,000+ members, that's not too many! Maybe those in the know could verify if that's an accurate statement.

Karen,
It looks like 2.5%, that will look good on a press release.
Thanks for your help.

Hi - I am receiving mine and while I am leaving today and can not get my award tonight - I believe I am on this amazing list somewhere?

Ana Brandt

And not to be silly but what is the abbreviation for Craftsman is it Cr?

Hello Ana ... CONGRATULATIONS! You would have gotten a letter from PPA telling you that you were going to be receiving your degree Assuming that is the case, technically once the awards are over and degrees are presented you are allowed to make your announcement. They will also have templates for a formal announcement available on the ppa.com website. The Craftsman degree abbreviation is Photog.CR after your name.
