Photographic Society of America Recognized Exhibitions
The Photographic Society of America (PSA) supports a system of recognizing photo competitions for photographers worldwide. The recognized exhibitions are published each month in the PSA Journal and on the PSA web site. These exhibitions have agreed to conform to the PSA Exhibition Standards (ES). The exhibitions are categorized by technique and subject interest with the most current closing dates in each category listed first. You need not be a PSA member to enter any of the exhibitions, but only PSA members can apply their exhibition acceptances toward PSA Star Ratings. The Camera Council is proud to be a member of the Photographic Society of America.
