Please have your image to me at the Email address below by the FINAL ENTRY DATE

Send all submissions to:   

Email subject line should read: PSA Entry

You will receive an email back that we have received your entry. If you do not get one within a few days, please resubmit.

You will also receive an email if your image has been selected for competition

Our club can only enter 6 images per competition and only one per member each time.

Once an image has been entered into the Interclub PID Competition, it’s ineligible for reentry in other PID competitions—even from another club.

No two clubs may submit images by the same maker—the first club who enters an image from a maker becomes that maker’s club for the year.

Members can submit one image per competition. All images must be sent to the above emails. All decisions on which to enter are final. If your image isn’t selected for a competition, you may resubmit it for a subsequent one…but you’ll need to send it again. After each competition, all submissions will be deleted.

Rules for sizing images: they must be no larger than 1024 wide and 768 tall.

          Vertical images cannot exceed 768 pixels in height

         Horizontal images cannot exceed 1024 pixels in width

         Square images cannot exceed 768 pixels on all sides

         All images must be submitted as JPGs and need to be converted to the sRGB color space.

(Unless your image proportions are in the exact ratio of 4 to 3, one of these dimensions will be less than maximum. The image will be projected as received, as long as not over the maximum)

Warning: Do not include a pound sign (#), an equal sign (=), a question mark (?), a single quote (‘), a double quote (“), a colon (:) or a semi-colon (;) in your image file names.


All images must meet the following Travel Definition.

“A Photo Travel image expresses the characteristic features or culture of a land as they are found naturally. There are no geographic limitations. Images from events or

activities arranged specifically for photography, or of subjects directed or hired for photography are not appropriate. Close up pictures of people or objects must include

features that provide information about the environment. Techniques that add, relocate, replace or remove any element of the original image, except by cropping,

are not permitted. The only allowable adjustments are removal of dust or digital noise, restoration of the appearance of the original scene, and complete conversion

to greyscale monochrome. Other derivations, including infrared and toned monochrome, are not permitted. All images must appear natural.”

NOTE: Portraits of people which do not include sufficient environment are liable to be scored very low as not meeting the concept of ‘features that provide information about the


NOTE: Images which have been too ‘worked’ or ‘processed’ and no longer look like photographs are liable to be scored very low as not ‘appearing natural’.

NOTE: Toned monochrome is NOT permitted and will receive a minimum score
