Information and Instructions

Calendar Select a competition closing date to submit your images.

Individual membership in the Photographic Society of America (PSA) is required to enter the Individual Creative Competitions. Click here to obtain information and an application for PSA membership.

Entry Fees These competitions are open, free of charge, to all individual PSA members, who are in good standing, as one of their many membership benefits.

Creative Images These Competitions are open to all creative techniques, which produce images that display obvious "altered reality." These types of images are most often montages (blending of multiple images) or the results of using processing filters that modify the colors, shapes and forms of the objects that are included within them. High dynamic range (HDR) images are not considered "altered reality" without further processing.

Entries must originate as photographs (image-captures of objects via light sensitivity) made by the entrant on photographic emulsion and digitally scanned or acquired digitally. By virtue of submitting an entry, the entrant certifies the work as his/her own and permits the sponsors to reproduce all or part of the entered material free of charge for publication and/or display in media related to the competition. This may include low resolution posting on a web site. The competition assumes no liability of any misuse of copyright. Images may be altered, either electronically or otherwise, by the maker and artwork or computer graphics created by the entrant may be incorporated if the photographic content predominates. All final work in an electronic file.

Neither the maker's name or the image title shall not appear in the image area of the digital file.

Any image previously accepted in a CPID Creative Individual International Competition or Individual Creative Competition is not eligible for re-entry.

Entries As many as two digital images may be entered in each competition.

Image Size The maximum allowable horizontal dimension (width) is 1024 pixels.

The maximum allowable vertical dimension (height/tall) is 768 pixels.

Smaller images will be accepted.

File Names It is not necessary to re-name your image file; that will be done for you automatically.

Color Profile Saving your "jpg" files using the sRGB color profile is recommended as it will provide better quality under the projection conditions used for judging.

Awards For each competition: First, Second and Third Place awards will be presented, as well as Honorable Mentions and Acceptances; awards will also be given for a maker's two images receiving the highest combined score. Note: these acceptances may NOT be used when applying for Projected Image Division Stars, Galaxies or Diamonds.
