ASP Service Award

The American Society of Photographers Service Award was created to recognize members who volunteer within the organization. It is achieved by earning points through countless hours of service. In order to recognize and show appreciation for the time, talent and expertise generously contributed for the benefit of the American Society of Photographers and its members. The black ribbon and distinctive medallion is not just a symbol of hard work, but an indication of the selfless character of the person who wears it.

The Service Award Medallion is designed to demonstrate to your peers and customers your dedication and efforts to support and improve the American Society of Photographers. It should be worn at all photographic functions and presentations.

Once you have earned the initial 25 service points you will receive the Service Award Medallion at our annual Gala Dinner & Awards ceremony held in conjunction with PPA's Imaging USA. After you have earned your Service Award Medallion your continued service earns points toward Service Bars. For each additional 25 service points you earn you will receive a Service Bar. The Service Bars are attached on the ribbon with your Service Award Medallion.
