The PSA was founded in 1934 when the Associated Camera Clubs of America (ACCA), founded in 1919, established an Organizing Committee, decided to enroll individual members, and passed a resolution to change the name of ACCA to the Photographic Society of America (PSA). The Photographic Society of America (PSA) is a worldwide organization providing a wide range of services that promote photography and benefits to its members. Individual members can participate in competitions, study groups and on-line education programs designed to advance their photographic knowledge and skills. Competitions are held for clubs, councils, federations and chapters.
Although 2017-2018 will be the first year that the VCC has entered PSA Interclub Photo competitions, we have a wonderful track record in the PSA Website and Newsletter competitions.
