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 2016. With one first place and two third places and a number of acceptances our youth did us proud.

The full results will be available on the PSA website in due course.
