Photo-Journalism Division

PSA Submission Rules

All PSA images must have a unique title. The maximum size for all images is 768 pixels vertical by 1024 pixels horizontal. Images will be used only once in each Division. Members of more than one participating club may only compete with one club each season!

Photo-Journalism images are scored first on the strength of the story; then on graphic quality. Photo-Journalism images must be TRUE! Adding, subtracting or moving elements is NOT allowed. The “hand” of man shall NOT be present in any Photo-Journalism image. Cropping of the image is allowed. The highest score awarded is sixteen (16) points.

KPG strives for a balance of both Open and Human Interest in each club submission. Photo-Journalism Images may be documentary, spot news, or sport action in the Open judging. Human Interest images convey a strong “human” story.

Six images by at least four KPG member photographers will besubmitted from Kitsap Photography Guild before each deadline. Annual PJD deadlines are:  November 15, January 15, March 15, and May 15.

Our club members are competing with photography clubs from all over the world in four divisions. Will one of them be you?
