PSA Interclub Digital Creative Competition

  As a Club, VCC is not participating in PSA competitions in 2022-2023; individuals may participate if they choose.  


The PSA definition of Creative is “Altered Reality.” The image may be of any subject matter and must obviously display a change in natural color, form, shape or any combination of these three. All images must be original and may not incorporate elements produced by anyone else. Artwork or computer graphics generated by the entrant may be incorporated if the original photographic content predominates. Images may not be constructed entirely within a computer. High Dynamic Range (HDR) images without further changes are not considered “Altered Reality.”

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.
