Each Nature Division Digital Competition season consists of three contests. Each club can enter six different images by at least 4 different club members in each contest, for a total of 18 different images for the season. The Nature Division Digital Club Competitions are open to all camera clubs that are members of PSA. Individual club members submitting images for the Interclub competitions are not required to be PSA members. Each individual member must be the full owner of all rights for the submitted works.
All images must comply with the nature definition outlined on the CAPA Digital Nature Competition web page on this site. For the wildlife definition, please refer to the CAPA Spring Wildlife page. All images complying with the wildlife definition are eligible for entry in the PSA Nature Division Interclub Competition.
Please note: Individuals may not enter images through two different clubs.
Once an image has been entered into the Interclub PID Competition, it is ineligible for re-entry in this competition even if the maker moves to another club the following year. No two clubs may submit images by the same maker.
