Founded in 1934, PSA is the largest association of its kind, bringing together professional and amateur enthusiasts of all ages and levels of achievement. As a non-profit organization, its mission is to promote and enhance the art and science of photography in all its phases, among members and non-members alike. PSA is a worldwide interactive organization for anyone interested in photography, be they casual, serious amateurs or professional photographers. PSA has over 5000 members in all 50 states as well as 60 other countries around the world. As a member club, PPC participates in PSA through our PSA Representative. PSA also offers Individual Memberships that offer numerous benefits including competitions, workshops and education programs.
Our PSA representative is Larry Petterborg.
GSCCC is comprised of some 25 member photography/camera clubs from Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas. As a member club, PPC submits entries to GSCCC’s monthly Projected Digital competitions through our GSCCC Representative who chooses entries from PPC competitions and/or PPC member contributions. PPC does not submit entries to the GSCCC Print competitions. Up to four entries can be submitted per competition category (i.e., Photojournalism, Pictorial, or Nature) each month, but not more than one entry from any individual photographer within a single competition category. As a member club, PPC also judges one GSCCC competition per year.
Our GSCCC representative is Sam Lucas.
