Each division provides a wide range of activities consistent with its area of emphasis. Generally these include individual and interclub competitions, study groups for individuals, providing recognition for International Exhibitions, and operating a Stars/Galaxy Ratings program for individual exhibition acceptances.
Divisions identify the top exhibitors, worldwide, on an annual basis through the publication of a Who's Who listing in the PSA Journal. This listing includes all photographers who achieve an established level of success by participating in PSA recognized exhibitions, whether they are PSA members or not.
