Why Join PSA

PSA Membership Dues & Rates

PSA offers three membership categories (individual, photographic organization and youth) for 1, 2 or 3 year terms. Individual members have the option to receive the monthly PSA Journal in printed form or in a digital format, via the PSA Website, at a reduced rate. These members have an opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities, including study groups, individual competitions, educational programs and image evaluations as well as having their own image galleries.

Photographic organizations such as camera clubs, camera club councils, federations and photographic societies as well as libraries and others having photographic interests also have programs specifically designed for them. Among them are inter-club competitions as well as newsletter and website contests. Club judging services are also available. In addition, it is possible to have links to their websites. The representative of each organization will receive a printed copy of the PSA Journal to share with their fellow members.

At reduced rates, youth members (under 18 years of age) may enjoy many of the same benefits as individuals, including the option to receive either the printed or the digital journal.

As shown below, membership rates are based on area of residence. Canada, Mexico and USA rates are listed first, followed by rates for those residing outside North America.

PSA Refund Policy

The PSA Membership fees are not to be treated as a Journal subscription. As a matter of standard policy, PSA does not refund payments for which a membership has been processed, a membership ID provided and access to services and all benefits enabled. If a member has unintentionally made multiple payments for the same period of membership, the additional payments may be refunded or, if the member agrees, used to extend their membership.
