I never asked some honors in photography to PSA, FIAP, UPI, ISF, etc... Just 5 stars PSA in ND and CS ; because I prefer to be on the land rather than to make administrative demands.
But here are some awards:
Best of the Best FIAP 2016
Best of the Best FIAP 2017
PSA Best Of the Year in Nature Open : 2011 and 2013
PSA Portrait individual competition 2012/2013 : Best of the Year (1st place)
Who's who PSA Nature digital :
-2013 : 3th place
-2014 : 1st place (number ONE)
From the year 2015 the PSA it's the shame. I only participate if there is the FIAP recognition.
