Entrants must be PSA members in good standing who are the winners of the Best of Show or PSA Gold medals in Photojournalism Division Sections of PSA-Recognized Exhibitions whose closing dates occurred in the previous Calendar Year. Participating in this program does not provide an individual with membership in the Photojournalism Division.
Deadline: May 26, 2022, for judging in early June 2022
All eligible entrants will receive an invitation to enter by email from the Photojournalism Image of the Year Director. This email will list the titles of the projected images that the member has eligible. Additionally, there will be instructions regarding how and where to enter online. Entries for the 2021 year of exhibitions will be due by May 26, 2022. Images are not to be submitted prior to receiving the invitation entry form from the Director. Invitations will arrive about mid April 2022. All entrants will now have to agree to PSA usage regulations prior to submission. This will be a check off box on the online entry form much like the check off box on all PSA Exhibition entry forms.
Please put the Director’s email into your address book so your invitation will not go to spam. All invitations to enter will come from firstname.lastname@example.org.
