PSA offers a unique opportunity for member clubs from all over the world to enter Interclub Competitions each year.  Both the club and individual members of the club can receive recognition for their photography.  Clubs wishing to enter one or more PSA Interclub Competition, should read the article linked below, "A Dynamic Interactive Process for Entering PSA Interclub Competitions" and contact the Consultant with any questions.


Interclub Competitions

The PSA Interclub Competitions are organized by PSA Divisions and begin in the fall each year.  Each Interclub Competition has its own schedule, guidelines, and requirements (e.g., three or four judgings a year; one or several skill levels).  If a club wishes to enter, but the competition year has already had one judging, the club can usually enter, but cannot receive awards for one set of images.  See the Interclub Deadline chart.

How to Enter

Determine which PSA Interclub Competition(s) the club wishes to enter.  Identify a Club Interclub Competition Chair or a different Club Chair for each Interclub Competition. The Club Interclub Chair(s) can work with the Consultant and the Chair of each Division Interclub Competition to make sure there is understanding of the guidelines (and the definitions for the reality based Divisions - Nature, Photo Travel, and Photojournalism). Register with the Division Interclub Chair and begin gathering images from club members.
