Club Judging Services

Clubs Judging Services are available to PSA-member clubs, who wish to have their club members’ images scored and critiqued.  This very popular service is meant to be a learning tool by providing feedback on images.

PSA has qualified judges who volunteer their judging services with proper lead time and scheduling for such activities as monthly club critiques and End of Year scoring.  

This service is for digital images only, sent in electronic format or website access. The judging report, along with limited critiques if requested, will be returned to the contact person via email.  The information below is to be provided in an email and sent to the Club Judging Services Director to have a club judging arranged.
