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
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

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 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.
Photojournalism entries shall consist of images with informative content and emotional impact, including human
interest, documentary, sports and spot news. The storytelling value of the image shall receive priority over pictorial
quality. In the interest of credibility, PJ images must not misrepresent the truth. No situations shall be set up for the
purpose of photography, and no alteration of the subject matter is allowed, including any techniques that add, combine,
relocate, replace or remove any elements of the original image. No unnatural sharpening or special effect filters can be
applied. Only cropping, resizing, lightening or darkening, and restoration of original color are permitted. Color images
can be converted to monochrome.
