Results from Round 2 of PSA Nature Competition

The results of Round 2 of PSA’s Interclub Nature Competition are in.  TPS should be very proud.  Our total score for this round was 67 – one point below placing 3rd.  The top scoring club was 70 so one can see how well we did.  TPS placed 5th out of 41 clubs in Class B.  Our overall standing is 13th in Class B – but the point totals are VERY CLOSE!

I especially want to thank Debbie Klosowski, Dick Knudson, Doug Hall, Steve Russell, Joe Tieger and Maggie Tieger for allowing us to submit their images for the second round.  A special congratulations goes to Steve Russell.  His image,  Dinner from Dad,  received an Honorable Mention.  It’s a big deal.  Competition is fierce.

Individual scores (range was 3 to 14):

  • Debbie Klosowski/Lion Cubs in Tree -10
  • Dick Knudson/American Avocet Pair -11
  • Doug Hall/Waterfall Gorge 1-12
  • Steve Russell/Dinner from Dad 13/HM
  • Joe Tieger/Ring Tailed Leumur Focused-10
  • Maggie Tieger/Sifaka Leaping  11

Round 3 images will be collected in March.  Unlike the other interclub competitions, the Nature Competition requires that photographers adhere to a restrictive Nature Definition.  We are a strong nature club, so I am confident we will continue to do well.  Images with high impact and technical excellence tend to do best in this competition.

PSA Results: Second Round TPS PSA Interclub Competition

We have received the results from the second round of competition for the PSA Interclub Competition.  Our club has participated in this club competition for the last several years, moving  forward through various competition levels. We are currently competing in Group A which is by far the most difficult competition group.

I want to especially thank Dan Suckow, Judi Kubes, Tim Clifton, Kathy Admire, Richard Price and Maggie Tieger for allowing us to submit their images for the second competition round.  We received a round total of 63. The highest score received by any club was 73.

If you would like to see a slideshow of images that received individual awards this round, as well as during the previous round, you can go to the Projected Image Division (PID) Interclub Competition page.  Scroll down to  2018-2019 PID Interclub Results.   You do NOT need to be a PSA member to see this information.  Remember, TPS is in Group A.  While we did not receive any individual awards this round, we did receive some in the first round.  You will see a couple award winning images in the November round slide show.

This month, I will be assembling a collection of 6 images by 6 different TPS  members to submit for the March 1 round.  This is a great opportunity for us to show the collective work of our membership.

Best regards,

  Dorinda Wills, QPSA

  PSA Representative for TPS

Results: January And December Print

December print competitions delayed

As most Society Associates who compete in the Print Division Competition know, our December meeting was canceled because of venue issues. Bates Tech was closed, and the fire hall was preempted by Pierce County so they could use the meeting room as their command center during the major wind storm.

With no place to meet, the competitions were postponed until the regular January meeting.

December Assigned Topic (Theme)

Here are the winners of the popular vote for the Assigned Topic or Theme Competition. The theme was Creative Portrait. There were 12 images entered by 8 members.

Assigned Topics – Themes for 2018/2019

During each of our projection and print meetings, we show Theme of the Month images and conduct a popular vote.  Members are invited to bring up to 2 images to show.  We encourage you to go out and make new images specifically to show for the theme of the month rather than go through your catalog to find an image that fits.
