"PSA Nature Image of the Year Judging"
by Susan Mosser, HonPSA, HonNEC-Coordinator
Monday, August 6, 2:00 PM

This August, we will be judging the PSA Nature Image of the Year at GLPA. The judging will take place on Monday, August 6, 2018, at 2pm. and should take about two hours.

Every year I invite members of the club and the photography public to attend the judging and we have had very few people ever come. This year the club was supposed to be booked for a function on the weekend so we booked the judging on a week day. The club is not longer booked but it is too late to change the date of the judging.

There will be about 400 - 450 images being judged. These are images that have won medals in PSA sanctioned nature exhibitions through the past year all over the world. The images also will come from entrants from all over the world and will be the best nature images in the world for the past year. If you like nature; come down and check it out. There will be no commentary, only three judges scoring each image from two to five points for a total of six to fifteen points per image. There will be one medal winner in open nature and one in wildlife chosen with a small number of Honor Awards. We will also be judging the best Nature Print of the Year but these will be viewed as digital images as it is very difficult to get the prints and handle them as they are all unmounted. One Medal for prints and a small number of Honor Awards will also be selected by the judges. This is an invitation only competition. You must have won a medal to enter.

Our judges this year will be three GLPA members, Richard Cloran, HonPSA, MPSA, HonNEC, Michael McNeill, APSA, MNEC and Jacob Mosser, HonPSA, EPSA, HonNEC. All have multiple galaxies in PSA International Exhibitions and have been awarded many medals in Nature exhibitions. All three are also members of CamNats, an invitation only Nature photography club.

These are the best nature images in the world and we have such strong nature photographers in the club that I am amazed each year that no one comes to the judging.
