14. FIAP AND PSA DEFINITIONS

Every entry must be in order to the strict definitions, so that accepted work of the author could be validated by the International Organizations, granting recognition or patronage.

FIAP Definitions

FIAP Definition of the Black and White Photography (monochrome)

This definition supersedes the Document 223 and the INFO 1991/12. A black and white work fitting from the very dark grey (black) to the very clear grey (white) is a monochrome work, with the various shades of grey. A black and white work toned entirely in a single color will remain a monochrome work able to stand in the black and white category; such a work can be reproduced in black and white in the catalogue of a salon under FIAP Patronage. On the other hand, a black and white work modified by a partial toning, or by the addition of one color, becomes a color work (polychrome) to stand in the color category; such a work requires color reproduction in the catalogue of a salon, under FIAP Patronage.

"With the sole act of submitting his/her images or files to a salon under FIAP Patronage, the entrant accepts without exception and with no objection that the submitted images can be investigated by FIAP to establish if these obey to FIAP regulations and definitions even if the entrant is not a member of FIAP;  that FIAP will use any means at its disposal for this undertaking; that any refusal to cooperate with FIAP or any refusal to submit the original files as captured by the camera, or failure to provide sufficient evidence, will be sanctioned by FIAP and that in case of sanctions following the non-compliance with FIAP regulations, the name of the entrant will be released in any form useful to inform the breaches of the rules. It is recommended to leave the EXIF data in the submitted files intact in order to ease eventual investigations."

PSA Definitions

General

Entries must originate as photographs (image-capture of objects via light sensitivity) made by the entrant on photographic emulsion or acquired digitally. By virtue of submitting an entry, the entrant certifies the work as his/her own and permits the sponsors to reproduce all or part of the entered material free of charge for publication and / or display in media related to the exhibition. This may include low resolution posting on a website. The exhibition assumes no liability for any misuse of copyright. Image alteration and computer generation: Except for the restrictions on Nature images described in the Nature definition, images may be altered, either digitally or otherwise, by the entrant. Images may not be constructed entirely with a computer and all photographic components must have been photographed by the entrant who holds copyright of the complete works submitted.

Monochrome

An image is considered to be Monochrome only if it gives the impression ofhaving no color (i.e. contains only shades of gray which can include pure blackand pure white) OR it gives the impression of being a greyscale image that has been toned in one color across the entire image. (For example by Sepia, red,gold, etc.) A greyscale or multi-colored image modified or giving the impressionof having been modified by partial toning, multi-toning or by the inclusion of spotcoloring does not meet the definition of monochrome and shall be classified as a Color Work.
