FIAP AND PSA DEFINITIONS

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.

FIAP Definition of the Nature Photography

Nature photography: Depicts living, untamed animals and uncultivated plants in a natural habitat, geology and the
wide diversity of natural phenomena, from insects to icebergs. Photographs of animals which are domesticated,
caged or under any form of restraint, as well as photographs of cultivated plants are ineligible. Minimal evidence
of humans is acceptable for nature subjects, such as barn owls or storks, adapting to an environment modified
by humans, or natural forces, like hurricanes or tidal waves, reclaiming it. The original image must have been
taken by the photographer, whatever photographic medium is used. Any manipulation or modification to the
original image is limited to minor retouching of blemishes and must not alter the content of the original scene.
After satisfying the above requirements, every effort should be made to use the highest level of artistic skill in all
nature photographs.

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. Images may be altered, either electronically or
otherwise, by the maker and artwork or computer graphics created by the entrant may be incorporated if the
photographic content predominates.

Nature:

Nature photography is restricted to the use of the photographic process to depict observations from 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 to certify as to 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 enhance the nature story. The presence of scientific bands,
scientific tags or radio collars on wild animals is permissible. Photographs of artificially produced hybrid plants or
animals, mounted specimens, or obviously set arrangements, are ineligible, as is any form of manipulation that
alters the truth of the photographic statement. No techniques that add to, 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 are permitted. All adjustments must appear natural. Color
images can be converted to grayscale monochrome. Infrared images are not allowed.

Photo Travel:

A Photo Travel image must express the feeling of a time and place, and portray a land, its distinctive features or
culture in its natural state. There are no geographical limitations. Close-up pictures of people or objects must
include distinguishable environment. Techniques that add to, relocate, replace or remove any element of the
original image, except by cropping, are not permitted. All adjustments must appear natural. Conversion to full
monochrome is acceptable. Derivations, including infrared, are unacceptable.

Monochrome:

A monochrome image is defined as having varying shades of no more than one color (various shades of that color
from very light to very dark) but it may be any single color. Multitoned images (various shades of two or more
colors) and greyscale images with added an accent color are not acceptable in Monochrome Class sections and
must be entered in Color Class sections.
