All projected images and/or prints by a PSA member that have received a medal or other award higher than an Honorable Mention, whether in Nature or Wildlife, in a PSA-recognized Nature Exhibition for the previous year, are eligible for this Year End free competition. The next competition will be in August 2017, when the medal-winning projected images and/or prints from 2016 Exhibitions will be judged.
All eligible entrants will receive an entry form, either by email or postal mail, if no email address is available on the PSA member directory, from the Nature Image of the Year Director. This entry form will list the titles of the projected images and/or prints the member has that are eligible. Additionally, there will be instructions regarding how and where to enter online. All print submissions will be entered and judged as digital images.
Entries for the 2016 year of exhibitions will be due by August 1, 2017. The judging will take place on the same day as the PSA Nature Division International Exhibition judging in early August, 2017, and depending on the judging venue, may be judged by the same Nature Exhibition judges.
Honor Award ribbons and the Image of the Year- Print of the Year Plaques/Medals for the three categories are presented to the winners, if present, at the Nature Division Luncheon/Meeting at the PSA Annual Conference. Awards are mailed to those who cannot attend the Conference.
