PSA members who have received acceptances in PSA-recognized Color Projected Image Exhibitions are eligible to apply for CPID Star Ratings. For additional information or help to apply for CPID Star Ratings, please email the Director.

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 CPID Star Rating application. 

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.


Beginning November 1, 2011, the fee for processing each Star Rating is $8.00. This $8.00 fee applies for those living in North America and those living outside North America. 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.
