Wally_Lee.jpg PSA members who have received acceptances in PSA-recognized Projected Image Exhibitions, Electronic Imaging Exhibitions, and Color Projected Image Exhibitions are eligible to apply for PID Star Ratings. For additional information or help to apply for PID Star Ratings, please email the Director. There are two PID classes: Color and Monochrome, which require separate applications for Star Ratings

Eligibility for a Star

Applicants  must be a member of PSA; however, acceptances received prior to membership are eligible for the acceptance requirements. Please contact the Director for information regarding the format of a PID Star Rating application.

Judging credits: A judge will only be allowed credits for two PID sections no matter how many PID sections of an exhibition they actually judged.

Basic requirements are:
1 STAR - at least 18 acceptances with at least 6 titles.
2 STARS - at least 36 acceptances with at least 12 titles.
3 STARS - at least 72 acceptances with at least 24 titles.
4 STARS - at least 144 acceptances with at least 48 titles.
5 STARS - at least 288 acceptances with at least 96 titles.


The fee for processing each Star Rating is $8.00. This policy is not retroactive; that is, fees already submitted with Star Ratings applications will not be changed. Cash or checks drawn on US banks are acceptable. Contact the Director before submitting a fee.

There is no fee for processing a conversion.
