PSA Interclub Creative (3) Results

Once again Wangi has excelled in the Creative Interclub. We achieved the top score in both A and B groups with a score of 83 points. The next highest was 79 points for the club which beat us in the last round. We achieved four awards and the lowest of our scores was 13 out of 15 so well done to all involved. There is a possibility that we may be promoted to the higher level group A next year.


These are the images entered by our members and you can see that our selection scoring is pretty consistent with the results above.

Online scoring (All Grades) PSA Interclub Travel (3)

I have opened the scoring to all members for this round as an encouragement for B Graders to judge and hopefully enter images in the rounds for the next year. To score, go online to Members, Competitions, then scroll down to PSA Interclub Travel right at the bottom, then click on the Scoring button with the star. Click on the darker blue button on the left and the images will be displayed and then you click the first image and then click on a score along the top row and then follow the prompts. Scoring guide – 1 = Does not meet definition, 2 = below standard, 3 = reasonable standard, 4 = above average standard and possible inclusion, 5 = definitely should be included in competition. You can score each image individually and not in comparison to any of the others. We will select the best six images from six different members.

Scoring will close tomorrow night (Sunday)

The PSA definition for Photo Travel is – A Photo Travel image expresses the characteristic features or culture of a land as they are found naturally. There are no geographic limitations. Images from events or activities arranged specifically for photography, or of subjects directed or hired for photography are not appropriate. Close up pictures of people or objects must include features that provide information about the environment. Techniques that add, relocate, replace or remove any element of the original image, except by cropping, are not permitted. The only allowable adjustments are removal of dust or digital noise, restoration of the appearance of the original scene, and complete conversion to greyscale monochrome. Other derivations, including infrared, are not permitted. All allowed adjustments must appear natural.

Online Scoring for PSA Creative (3)

All A Grade and Advanced members please log on to the website and go to competitions and scroll to the PSA Creative (3) competition and click on the star. Then click on the first image and click your score for that image in the bar at the top and wait for the next image to appear. Repeat the process and go through all of the images.

Score guide: 1 – Does not meet definition 2 – Below standard 3 – Average standard 4 – Above average standard and to be considered for inclusion 5 – High standard and should be selected

Remember that the PSA definition for creative is Altered Reality. Story telling or artistic interpretation carry a lot of weight in Altered Reality.

You have until Thursday midnight (tomorrow) to complete the scoring and I will then enter the top 6 images from six different people to the PSA Website. Thank you for helping our club selection process. We are starting to do well in these competitions and we must keep it going.

Lake Mac International Group – Varna Salon

The results are out for our first International Salon entered as a group. There were 17 Wangi members plus Roy Killen who entered a varying number of sections each and overall between us we gained 55 acceptances. This included a Salon Bronze Medal for Joy Thomas for her Landscape image and Colleen Price received a GPU HM for her Nature image.

Congratulations to all members who entered. I have drawn up a table for members giving breakdowns of where the acceptances came from.

This is a fantastic first up result and I will call a meeting to review the results and discuss future Salons. The link to the results is below:

PSA Interclub Nature Judging Results

Below is a PDF of the people who judged and the images selected to represent our club highlighted in orange.

As we are only permitted to use one image from each member, there were some higher scoring images which were not able to be used. We will save those for the next time.

Well done everybody and thanks to the people who submitted images and to those who voted.

Cheers Ian Coordinator PSA Interclub
