PSA, with an International scope, is made up of photography clubs, institutional groups, councils, and individual members. The Tacoma Photographic Society is a member of the Photography Society of America and competes in their Interclub Competitions which are open to all PSA member clubs.
Photography clubs compete during a calendar year in six PSA Divisions: Nature, Projected Image Division (open and creative), Photojournalism, Photo Travel, Pictorial Print, 3D. All images must follow strict PSA guidelines such as no "hand of man" rules for wildlife photography. The Tacoma Photographic Society is a member of PSA and competes in only two divisions: projected open color and projected open black and white.
To win an award at this competition level is an achievement to be very proud of. You must be a TPS Division Affiliate member to compete in this interclub competition.
Kathy Admire is the club's PSA representative for competitions. Bob Wills is the PSA representative for everything else including membership information.
