Photographic Society of America 2022 Web Site Contest

APS, for the second year in a row, took Second Place in the small clubs division (<50 members) of the Photographic Society of America's (PSA's) web site contest. Please congratulate our web master - Chris Handley, web site editor - Jim Harrison, and our members - their wonderful images and other contributions make the site a pleasure for all.


According to PSA, "All of the (40) websites entered in this year's contest were judged by two PSA member judges. None of the judges were new to the contest this year. Most of the judges are, or have been, the webmasters of websites that have done well in previous years’ contests." For example, Chris Handley, our web master, helped judge the Large Club entries.

Of note, both judges gave our APS site a perfect score on every aspect of their "Technical" evaluations. Sites are judged on a wide range of attributes including: Home Page/First Impressions, Content, Features, Technical and Bonus Scoring for particularly well done or innovative factors.
