Recently I achieved enough acceptances and awards to apply for my BPE4*. The BPE crowns are awarded for amassing points in the British Photographic Exhibitions with 1 point given for each acceptance. Images can be entered in all exhibitions not just the once, so if a good image is created it can score a point in each exhibition. To gain the BPE4* I needed to gain another 100 acceptances (on top of the 100 required for BPE3*) across the various exhibitions and this was achieved in August 2018. The big hitters amongst the successful images are shown below.
The BPE website can be seen here for more details on the exhibitions.
