As Chair of PSA's Photojournalism Division (PJD), I want to welcome and thank you for visiting our home page. If you have an interest in learning how to capture events effectively (whether for family records, a private collection of historical happenings, or publication) and sharing these images with fellow photographers, you should find a number of opportunities that would increase your experience and enhance your skills as well as providing additional enjoyment of this photographic medium.
Photojournalism images shall consist of pictures or sequences with informative content and emotional impact, including human interest, documentary and spot news. The journalistic value of the photograph shall be considered over pictorial quality. In the interest of credibility, photographs which misrepresent the truth, such as manipulation to alter the subject matter, or situations which are set up for the purpose of photography, are unacceptable in Photojournalism. Human Interest images depict a person or persons in an interactive, emotional, or unusual situation, excluding recreational or sports ACTION. See our Guidelines for Human Interest Images.PSA members qualify for membership of the Photojournalism Division (PJD) by: earning a Star Rating in the PJD; participating in the Quarterly Competition or a Study Group in the PJD; or being an Officer or Director in the PJD Division. If you have any questions or wish additional information, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you! - John Larson, Jr., APSA, MPSA
