The Photographic Guild of Nova Scotia is a PSA Member Club. We participate in INTERCLUB competitions with other PSA Member Clubs from all over North America and some from overseas. Interclub is an excellent tool to test how our imagery stands in the world.

The 6 Interclub Competitions are overseen by Interclub Chairs. PGNS holds PSA competition events 4 times each season. The top digital images from each category are sent via the Internet to the Competition Chair.  The top scoring Prints from all five categories are mailed in a special ‘mailer’ to the Competition Host Club.

PGNS competes in 6 INTERCLUB categories:

  1. PID- Projected Image Division – Open – (4 Rounds)
  2. PID- Projected Image Division Creative – (4 Rounds)
  3. Nature Division – (3 Rounds)
  4. Photojournalism Division – (4 Rounds)
  5. Photo Travel Division – (3 Rounds)
  6. Pictorial Print Division (5 categories each round) (4 Rounds)

PSA Volunteers, and Club Reps and volunteers within the Clubs themselves, work hard to make the competitions run as smoothly as possible. When results are in it is nice to have a place to share them.  After PSA NEWS and related items are posted to the main page of the PGNS website they will be placed here on the PSA page of the website for easy reference.  Most of these posts will also be seen on the PGNS FaceBook page, so please find the Photographic Guild of Nova Scotia and ‘like’ the page to ‘FOLLOW’ the Guild’s news, upcoming events and so on.

    I am sending this information that you can get started on your entries for the 3rd and final round of Guild/PSA competitions for the season. The usual categories are listed, and the Creative category is Guild only. All must be NEW images meaning you have not used them before in Guild Competitions.

    And you had better find a location, the right temps and conditions and get out there to shoot 2 ‘Night’ images if you haven’t already got them in the can. Of course you can interpret that theme in whatever way you want…be creative and let’s see what comes in for that category! Images for this theme must have been shot after the 1st of September, 2023.

    The Competition Review with the judges is on the 3rd of March! 👀

    This upload deadline is the 18th of February @ 11:45 pm
