PPD Print Judging for PSA Clubs

Print Judging

Larry Cowles, FPSA, GMPSA

The PSA Club Print Judging Service is a program to help a PSA-member club request a judge for a club print competition. The club contacts the Consultant, requests a judge, and provides information about the particular competition and the time frame for judging. The Consultant then contacts a judge from a list of potential qualified people.

The Consultant provides contact information of the judge to the club, and the club then contacts the judge and arranges for sending the prints and the return postage. When the prints are received, the judge reviews the prints, gives scores and awards 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and Honorable Mentions or as instructed by the club.   The judge comments on the award winning prints and sends these comments via email.  Special arrangements can be made for the judge to comment on all images or do a comment only critique of the images without scores.  Some judges will record these comments on a digital recorder provided by the club, and send the recorder back to the club along with the prints.  For more information contact Larry Cowles FPSA GMPSA at cowtech@earthlink.net.


Please use the request form to request a judge.
