A member may not use a photo that was previously submitted and chosen as a top six image in past rounds. However, if a member has a good image that for some reason did not make the top six, it may be resubmitted.

All club images will be judged by members. The top six images chosen in each division will be entered in the PSA competition round. PSA results will be announced as soon as received.
