PSA Interclub Competition 2017-2018: Nature and Open
Photographic Society of America (PSA) is an organization that offers photographic competitions and activities that span all continents, for both individuals and camera clubs. Vienna Photographic Society has been a PSA club member for many years. As such we are entitled to participate in the PSA Interclub Competitions, which pit clubs from all over the world against one another. Both club honors and individual awards can be achieved.
This season VPS will participate in Open (or Projected Image Division-PID) and Nature categories of the PSA Interclub Competition. All VPS members are encouraged to participate. There are several rounds of competition for each category and deadlines will appear on our club calendar. Entry is via the club website at vpsva.org. VPS may only enter six images for each category. To select which pictures to enter in the Open (or PID), members will vote for their favorite submissions. We will enter the pictures with the most votes into the competition. A panel of 3 judges will select the nature images from those entered that will move on to the PSA.

IMPORTANT: PSA Nature is reality-based, meaning that nothing can be added or removed from the image except by cropping, and the image must appear natural. Nature images may not have any human elements within the image with rare exceptions. Human elements include buildings, fences, roads, cultivated/ hybrid plants, and domesticated animals.
