PPD Print Judging for PSA Clubs

Print Judging

Bill Dart


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 several people from a list of potential judges until one is found who is willing to serve.

The Consultant sends the name, address, and email address 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 and awards 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and Honorable Mentions.   The judge comments on the award winning prints and sends these comments via email.  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.
