The exhibition is open to anyone; however, an entry may be rejected when the
sponsoring organization or its agent, in its reasonable discretion, believes the
entry does not conform to the exhibition rules and conditions.
An entrant’s images will not be presented to the judges consecutively. An entrant’s
four images will be distributed throughout four rounds of judging in that section.
Distribution of images shall be in the same round order as submitted by the
Entries must originate as photographs (image-captures 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 own (aliases are
not permitted). The entrant 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. Note: Entrants
who indicate that their images may not be reproduced or used “will not be eligible
for awards” or inclusion in audio-visuals of the exhibition “and could be subject to
disqualification” by the exhibition sponsors.
The exhibition assumes no liability of any misuse of copyright. Images may be
altered, either electronically or otherwise, by the maker.
All parts of the image must have been photographed by the author who is holding the copyright of all works submitted.
All final work must be on photographic film, or on electronic
file, or on photographic or electronic print material, mounting excepted.
No title or identification of the maker shall be visible anywhere on the face of an
image, print mat or mount entered in a PSA Recognized exhibition.
Each image must have a unique title. Once an image has been accepted in a PSA
Recognized exhibition, that same image, or a like “in camera” or a “reproduction”
duplicate of that image:

i. May not be entered or re-entered in any section of the same Division Star
Ratings class in that exhibition regardless of media, format, or title.
ii. May not be re-titled for entry in any other PSA Recognized exhibition,
including translation into another language.

Words such as “Untitled” and “No Title” are not acceptable as part or all of an
image’s title, nor are camera capture filenames.
An image may be entered in only one section where acceptances of that image in
multiple sections would be eligible for the same star path.

If at any time, it is determined in the reasonable discretion of the exhibition
organizer or the judges before, during, or after the judging of an exhibition that
an entrant has submitted entries where one or more images may fail to comply
with these Conditions of Entry, including the stated definitions, the exhibition
organizers reserve the right to delete the entry from the exhibition and void any
or all acceptances or awards in connection with the exhibition. Fees may be
forfeited or refunded in these circumstances. The entrant acknowledges that the
decision of the exhibition organizers or the judges is final.
In order to ensure that images comply with the Conditions of Entry and
definitions, the exhibition organizers may carry out reasonable measures to
verify that:

a) the images are the original work of the entrant and
b) the images comply with the rules and definitions as set out in these Conditions of Entry.

These steps include, but are not limited to, questioning any entrant, requiring
the submission of RAW files or other digital files representing the original
capture of the submitted image(s), confronting the entrant with evidence that
one or more submitted images fails to comply with the Conditions of Entry (also
known as Entry Rules), and offering the entrant a reasonable opportunity to
provide counter evidence to refute the exhibition organizer’s evidence by a set
deadline. Such entries that are not cleared or are still questionable after the
entrant has presented evidence may be considered in breach of these
Conditions of Entry, and declined. Such entries may be referred to PSA for
further investigation of possible ethics violations.
PSA retains the right to investigate in any way all complaints/suspicions of
breaches of entry conditions, impose sanctions if deemed necessary, void the
acceptances of any image found to violate the PSA rules, include the entrant’s
name on the list of sanctions provided to Exhibitions, and share such
investigations with FIAP. Entrants automatically agree to these terms by the act
of entering the Exhibition and agree to cooperate with any investigation.

when he or she fills out the entry form. If the entrant does not so affirm the
entry will not be submitted.

Nature photography is restricted to the use of the photographic process to depict all branches of natural history, except anthropology and archeology, in such a fashion that a well-informed person will be able to identify the subject material and certify its honest presentation.
  • The story telling value of a photograph must be weighed more than the pictorial quality while maintaining high technical quality.
  • Human elements shall not be present, except where those human elements are integral parts of the nature story such as nature subjects, like barn owls or storks, adapted to an environment modified by humans, or where those human elements are in situations depicting natural forces, like hurricanes or tidal waves.
  • Scientific bands, scientific tags or radio collars on wild animals are permissible.
  • Photographs of human created hybrid plants, cultivated plants, feral animals, domestic animals, or mounted specimens are ineligible, as is any form of manipulation that alters the truth of the photographic statement.
  • No techniques that add, relocate, replace, or remove pictorial elements except by cropping are permitted.
  • Techniques that enhance the presentation of the photograph without changing the nature story or the pictorial content, or without altering the content of the original scene, are permitted including HDR, focus stacking and dodging/burning.
  • Techniques that remove elements added by the camera, such as dust spots, digital noise, and film scratches, are allowed.
  • Stitched images are not permitted.
  • All allowed adjustments must appear natural.
  • Color images can be converted to greyscale monochrome.
  • Infrared images, either direct-captures or derivations, are not allowed.
  • Images entered in Nature sections meeting the Nature Photography Definition above can have landscapes, geologic formations, weather phenomena, and extant organisms as the primary subject matter. This includes images taken with subjects in controlled conditions, such as zoos, game farms, botanical gardens, aquariums and any enclosure where the subjects are totally dependent on man for food.


An image is considered to be Monochrome only if it gives the impression of having no color (i.e. contains only shades of gray which can include pure black and 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 impression of having been modified by partial toning, multi - toning or by the inclusion of spot coloring does not meet the definition of monochrome and shall be classified as a Color Work.

Definition of the black and white photography (monochrome)

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 colour 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 colour becomes a colour work (polychrome) to stand in the colour category; such a work requires colour reproduction in the catalogue of a salon under FIAP Patronage.

Photo Travel

A Photo Travel image expresses the characteristic features or culture of a land as they are found naturally. There are no geographic limitations. Images from events or activities arranged specifically for photography, or of subjects directed or hired for photography are not appropriate. Close up pictures of people or objects must include features that provide information about the environment. Techniques that add, relocate, replace or remove any element of the original image, except by cropping, are not permitted. The only allowable adjustments are removal of dust or digital noise, restoration of the appearance of the original scene, and complete conversion to greyscale monochrome. Other derivations, including infrared, are not permitted. All allowed adjustments must appear natural. All entries shall conform to the stricter of these definitions for acceptances to be validated by all the International Organizations granting recognition or patronage.

All entries shall conform to the stricter of these definitions for acceptances to be validated by all the International Organizations granting recognition or patronage.


By submitting an entry, the entrant certifies that he is a sole owner of the rights to use sent images, including copyright, patent and/or other applicable rights. All models must be of Legal Age of consent or have guardian permissions issued

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.
