Who's Who in Photography 2011: Important Notice
As many know the Photographic Society of America (PSA) is an organization of volunteers who give freely of their time and talents. This year there were a number of volunteers new to the complex and arduous job of compiling tens of thousands of lines of data, and the volume of data in the Color Projected Image Division (CPID), the Nature Division (ND) and Large Mono Prints presented many challenges and caused a delay in the division’s listings. As a result, the publication of PSA’s Who’s Who in Photography for 2011 was delayed. The Society thanks you for your patience and understanding.
The following is PSA’s annual record of exhibitors in all divisions and sections of the 3D, Color Projected Image, Electronic Imaging, Nature, Photo Travel, Photojournalism, and Pictorial Print Divisions, who have met the minimum number of acceptances in PSA-recognized exhibitions in 2011. The Membership and PSA Journal Editorial awards are also included.
The minimum number is 5% of the total possible acceptances in each section and therefore dependent upon the number of judgings that year. The minimum number and the exhibitions for that year are listed with each section. If the minimum number is 4 or less, the added requirement is acceptances in two or more judgings.
Every effort has been made to keep these lists accurate, however we are dependent upon the information presented in the catalogs from which this data is compiled. Unreported errors in the catalogs, missing catalogs, misspelling and/or misplacement of names may result in inaccuracies. Exhibitors are requested to use the same form of their name and country on all exhibition entries to facilitate correct credits. Catalog errors should be reported immediately to the exhibition and to the appropriate Who’s Who and Star Ratings Directors. Corrections must be confirmed by the exhibition. Note that a number of exhibitions that closed in 2011 did not send catalogs in time for inclusion in this listing and will be added to next year’s report. PSA Acceptance Spreadsheets are required to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org within forty-five (45) days of the last judging.
Errors in Who’s Who computations must be reported immediately. Corrections will be published in the February 2013 PSA Journal. Remember, only PSA-recognized exhibition sections whose catalogs or PSA Acceptance Spreadsheets were received can be counted: see lists at the beginning of each Who’s Who section. Any inquiry regarding the published listings must be directed to the appropriate current compiler (Director), listed with each Division. Initial contact can be by email sending an Excel file with published listings, titles of acceptances in each division and section. You may wish to send a copy to Jim Ewins, Who’s Who Director, email@example.com. A follow up hard copy list of exhibitions entered, the titles of acceptances in each exhibition and postage for the reply and return of paperwork may be required. Please do not ask for confirmation of acceptances before publication. Deadline for corrections is November 15, 2012. The asterisk symbol (*) denotes that the exhibitor has provided judging services in that Division. The number of credits given depends on the number of judges on the panel. Three judges=three acc; four or five judges=2 acc; six to ten judges=one acc. And more than ten=no credit. A judge must have acceptances in that Division section of other exhibitions to receive credit. “Jdg” = Number of judgings entered according to catalog records. “Acc” = Total number of acceptances.
