Awards


PSA Awards Overview

PSA is a society of and about photography and the recognition of the photographic achievements of members is a significant ongoing endeavor (with members earning PSA Star Ratings) that culminates in the presentation of division annual Image of the Year awards and, in particular, PSA Distinctions (PPSA, EPSA, MPSA, GMPSA) earned for photographic achievement..

PSA is also an organization of volunteers who are engaged in the operation and management of all PSA programs, services, and activities.  With this in mind, the Society recognizes the dedicated service that members provide through programs of continuous recognition and the presentation of many annual awards and, in particular, PSA Honors (i.e. APSA, FPSA, HonPSA, HonFPSA).

This section begins with PSA's highest award, the Progress Medal, and continues by outlining the many awards and honors that PSA presents to recognize a member's photographic achievement and/or their service.
