The Photographic Society of America is a non-profit, membership organization for people of all skill levels who love photography. Members enjoy choosing from many photo activities and services which are free with membership. All subject categories are covered in the 6 Divisions. There are online courses, study groups, mentors, consultants, and a wide variety of photo contests. The annual conference is attended by members from around the world. Competitive photographers love gaining worldwide recognition for their photography by entering photo competitions called Exhibitions. Exhibitions are held in countries all over the world. You earn points whenever your image is accepted at an Exhibition, and you accumulate Stars which then qualify you to apply for special initials to place after your name! PSA was established in 1934 and has thousands of members around the world, but mostly in the USA where it originated. The website is psa-photo.org.
