The PID Individual Portrait Competition is for individual PSA members and is exclusively for portraits of humans, including tasteful nudes.
Deadlines: March 1, April 22,
To submit images to this competition participants must have an account with Photo Club Services, which is the service hosting the competition web site and providing the competition software. There is no cost to create an account. If the entrant has an existing account, that account must be used instead of creating a new account.
Once an account has been created, it must be associated with a valid PSA membership number. After PSA membership is verified, participants can login with their account information and submit images.
Ribbons will be awarded for each competition (Round) as follows: First, Second, Third, Best Female, Best Male, Best Child, Best Indoor, Best Environmental, Best Monochrome, three (3) Judges Choices, and HM's. The number of Awards and HMs will be determined by the number of entries.
At the end of the year all Award and HM images will be judged for the Best Portrait of the Year. There will also be a Best of the Year Award for Best Female, Best Male, Best Child, Best Indoor, Best Environmental, and Best Monochrome Portrait.
The Best of the Portraits Competition results will be shown during the PSA Annual Conference and the awards will be presented at the PID Luncheon during the PSA Annual Conference.
