The PID Individual Creative Competition is exclusively for Creative Photography. The PSA definition of Creative is "Altered Reality." The image must obviously display a change in natural color, form, shape, or any combination of these three. Creative images are often montages (a blending or composite of multiple images). High Dynamic Range (HDR) images without further changes are not considered "altered reality."
The PID Individual Creative Competition is for individual PSA members. Each of the three sessions is conducted as a separate event. A PSA member may participate in as many or as few Individual Creative Competitions as they wish. A member can participate as soon as they join without being penalized or handicapped for missing prior competitions. If other necessities in a member's life cause them to miss a competition or two, no loss happens and no cumulative total is affected.
There are three sessions annually: March, April, and May. Each participant is allowed to enter a maximum of four images for each of the three separate sessions for a maximum of twelve images per competition year. Awards are Best of Show and Honorable Mentions in each session. The Best of Show and Honorable Mentions are displayed on the competition web site following each session. A special award for the entrant with the most accumulated points for all three sessions is presented after the final session is judged.
Digital entries are submitted at the Competition site.
