That's right the RPS awards are judged by a panel, but for the ARPS and The FRPS the applicant has to submit a panel of prints or DPI's that hang together as a panel of work on a subject of his/her choosing from the categories set by the RPS.
The PAGB is different in that you can submit a number of prints made up of any genre, but they are not viewed as panel. Your images are mixed up with other applicants' work and given marks by the adjudication panel. At the end of the judging all your marks are added up and if they reach the required total then you get the distinction.
P.S. I know quite a few members of the RPS who have no interest in trying to achieve letters after their name, just to take advantage of what the society has to offer, i.e. the various sections within the Society.
