2015 PSA PJ Quarterly Competition


There continue to be two competitions for the less experienced (two stars or less) and two for the more experienced (more than two stars) groups. Each group will have a General PJ and a Themed PJ competition. That means each person will have the opportunity to enter up to eight new mages (four in the General PJ category and  four in the Themed Category for the quarter). Again there will be no fee to participate. The themed competition for Round 1, 2015 is "Home Place" IN ADDITION to the requirements of the Open Section , Home Place images are limited to those images that encourage people of all ages to become more connected to and involved with the natural world that surrounds us.

DEFINITION OF AN ACCEPTABLE PJ IMAGE: Photojournalism entries shall consist of images or sequences of images with informative content and emotional impact, including human interest, documentary and spot news. The journalistic  value of the image shall receive priority over pictorial quality. In the interest of credibility, images that misrepresent the  truth and model or staged set-ups are not permitted. Techniques that add to, relocate, replace or remove any element  of the original image, except by cropping, are not permitted. Techniques that enhance the presentation of the image,  without changing the photojournalism content, are permitted. All adjustments must appear natural.


This activity is for images that have never been accepted in a recognized exhibition in order to help promote new work.
