For example, we conduct a number of study groups that have 3 to 7 members interacting with each other as they review and comment upon each others digital images. The Travel Essay and Best of Photo Travel Competitions are some of our offerings for individual members. Interclub competitions are held three times each year. We also conduct two sections of the annual PSA International Exhibition and we recognize a large number of international exhibitions each year so that our members can apply for Stars.
A Photo Travel image must express the feeling of a time and place, and portray a land, its distinctive features or culture in its natural state. There are no geographical limitations. Closeup pictures of people or objects must include distinguishable environment. Techniques that add to, relocate, replace or remove any element of the original image, except by cropping, are not permitted. All adjustments must appear natural. Conversion to full monochrome is acceptable. Derivations, including infrared, are unacceptable.
PSA members qualify for membership in the Photo Travel Division (PTD) by: holding a past or present PTD elected Office, being the Director of an activity in the PTD, earning a Star Rating in the PTD, participating in the Travel Essay Competition in the PTD, or participating in a Study Group in the PTD.
If you have any questions or wish additional information, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you! - George Bebout, APSA
