The Photographic Society of America (PSA) each year presents a Youth Showcase where school children from countries all over the world compete against each other in a salon. There are cash prizes available as well as the publication of winning images in the PSA journal. South Africa was represented by schools from Pretoria and Johannesburg in 2017.
The students were up against some great images from all over the world, especially in the color choice area. All combined, the award/acceptance rate was 27%. The competition had a total of 966 entries.
