The Photographic Society of America (PSA), founded in 1934, is a world-wide organization providing abundant resources for photographers, from the novice to the professional. PSA offers a monthly magazine, on-line learning, webinars, study groups, competitions, mentors and consultants. Membership covers 80 countries with over 5,000 members and 460 Camera Clubs.
PSA also recognises many international exhibitions; acceptances from these can be used to gain QPSA, PPSA, EPSA, MPSA and GMPSA distinctions (similar to acceptances in BPE and FIAP exhibitions). Anyone interested can get details about this international organisation at https://psa-photo.org/ or from Andrew Hersom ( firstname.lastname@example.org mob. 07507 495007 ) from Hull. Each country has a local membership director who helps members with any queries and provides advice and support.
PSA holds their International Exhibition every year. This is open to everybody.
Normally this is located in Oklahoma City but sadly last year two of the organisers died and because of Covid the exhibition has been split into 3 parts.

- STEREOSCOPIC (3D) – https://psa-photo.org/psa-international/
- PRINT – http://www.hoylakeinternational.org.uk/prints/smallprints21.pdf
The print section is being managed in the UK by a team lead by Brian Magor at Hoylake PS.
Print exhibitions have been few and far between in the last year but being in England the reduced postage should make entering more affordable. This is a small print exhibition – maximum size A4. If anyone would like more details or need any assistance Brian or Andrew will be happy to happy to advise.
