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.

You can check out the Photographic Society of America website.
