PSA Photo Festival
You will all appreciate that we are faced with a grave situation worldwide with the COVID 19 virus pandemic. The essential message is that we follow the health advice of our various governments, keep safe, and always think of the welfare of others.
For the immediate future, the issues of photographic exhibitions recognized by PSA is of lesser importance than the common good of our members. Clearly, those exhibitions that are judged live, by panels meeting together, cannot and should not continue. PSA’s position is that it would not be ethical to expose judges to potential exposure of the COVID 19 virus. Exhibitions may be able to convert to online judging. Those exhibitions that cannot, may have to postpone their judgings or cancel them. Public showings of exhibitions are now clearly out of the question, online galleries will replace the need for public showings and are acceptable from the PSA standpoint. Both PSA and FIAP have recognized the severity of the situation and have relaxed the rules for exhibitions. Hopefully, exhibitions will make clear on their websites what course of action they are taking. Entrants should consult these websites to find out what decisions are being made. It may be months before the picture becomes clearer and some exhibitions may have to be held over until next year.
Thank you all for your patience and understanding. Stay safe. - PSA Exhibition Services VP, Brian Magor and PSA Executive VP, J.R. Schnelzer
