The exhibition is open to anyone; however, an entry may be rejected when the Sponsor or the Exhibition Organizers, in its reasonable discretion, believes the entry does not conform to the exhibition rules and these Conditions of Entry. Membership in any photographic organization is not required.

Entries will not be accepted from any entrant who wos put on the PSA Penalties List for
Ethics Violation, Entry fees are not refundable in this circumstances.

PSA Star Ratings
To receive proper Star ratings credit from PSA, entrants must provide their names and country exactly the same in each exhibition. Aliases are not permited. Please contact PSA in the event
of name changes or relocating to another country. Using ones name differently in different exhibition exposes the entrant to risk that many of their acceptances may not be recognised by PSA Star Ratings.

Image Creation:
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 image, the entrant certifies the work as his own. Images may not incorporate elements produced by anyone else (for example: clip art, images of art by others downloaded from internet). Aliases are not allowed.

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. The Photographic Society of America (PSA) may request specific permission from entrants to reproduce entered images in its educational materials. The terms
of that permission will be mutually agreed between the entrand and PSA except in the circumstances where the entered image is found to breach the PSA Ethics Policy. In
those circumstances the image may be reproduced by PSA, without the entrants further permission, for educational purposes to illustrate serious exhibition rule violations. For those reproductions, the entrant name will be withheld.

Entries will not be accepted from entrants who indicate that their images may not be
reproduced in materials related to the exhibition. The exhibition assumes no liability of any misuse of copyright.

Alteration and Computer Generation:
Subjects to Divisional restrictions (particalarly Nature, Photo Travel and Photojournalism)
images may be altered, either electronically or otherwise, by the maker. Adjustments to
 enhance images or creatively modify images are allowed providing the underlying photograph
 is retained in a way that is obvious to the viewer.  Images may not be constructed entirely with
 a computer, and must be the sole work of the author.

Re-use of accepted images:
Any image that has been accepted in this exhibition, past or present, may not be entered again
 in the same Division Star Ratings Class any future instances of this exhibition. It may, of
course, be entered in any other PSA recognised exhibitions but must always have the same title. Re-titling in another language is not allowed.

An Entry consists of, up to and including, four (4) images entered by a single entrant into the same Section. An entrant may only enter a specific Section once.

Each image must have a unique title that is a description of the image. That unique title must be used for entry of that image or of an identical Image  into any and all PSA-Recognized exhibitions. Titles must be 35 characters or fewer. No titles may be visible to the judges, and nothing in the image may identify the maker. Titles must not include file extensions such as .jpg
 or .jpeg (or any other camera capture filenames such as IMG 471) Titles may not consist of personal identifiers possibly augmented by a number;  or include words such as "untitled" or
"no title". Titles may not consist solely of numbers unless those numbers are prominently contained within the image, such as a contestant number in a race.

Color and Monochrome: 
Color and Monochrome images from the same capture that share substantial pictorial content
in common will be considered the same image and must be given the same title.

- Photos must be in JPG file format, Max. image width (horizontal) is 1920 pix. Max. image

Statement on Subject Matter applicable to all sections

The fundamental rule that must be observed at all times and applies to all sections offered in exhibitions with FIAP patronage or PSA recognition is that the welfare of living creatures is more important than any photograph. This means that practices such as baiting of subjects with a living creature and removal of birds from nests, for the purpose of obtaining a
photograph, are highly unethical, and such photographs are not allowed in any exhibition with PSA recognition.  Under no circumstances may a living creature be placed in a situation where
 it will be killed, injured or stressed for the purpose of obtaining a photograph. Images that show live creatures being fed to captive animals, birds or reptilesare not permited under any circumstances.

There are also concerns about the use of aerial photography, drones, helicopters, low flying aircraft. These should not cause any interference with other individuals or animals which
causes a disturbance in their normal activity or disrupt the way any individuals or animals
interact with their environment. Entrants in PSA recognisedexhibition should comply with
all relevant laws and regulations, associated with aerial photography, in the country in which the image was taken.

Entry in this exhibition is conditional on accepting these policies.  The content of images must comply with these General Conditions and with the Division and Section definitions listed in
these conditions. Images that - in the sole opinion of the judges or the Exhibition Organizers -
do not comply, will be disqualified so the entrant may be aware of the problem when
considering entry into other exhibitions with PSA recognition.

Further details on the PSA's drone policy may be found at https://psa-photo.org/index.php?psa-policies#drone

PSA Monochrome Definition

An image is considered to be Monochrome only if it gives the impression of having no color (i.e. contains only shades of grey 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
(For example by Sepia, red, gold, etc.) A greyscale or multi-colored image modified or giving impression of having been modified by partial toning, multi-toning or by inclusion of spot
coloring does not meet the definition of monochrome and shall be classified as a Color work.

For the purpose of this exhibition, only grayscale images are allowed in monochrome sections. Toned images are not allowed.

Definition of Woman Man Child PID-C

The closest definition of Woman Man Child section, photography where the only condition is
that the subject is female, male or child.

Attention is drawn to the PSA Statement on Subject Matter which applies to all sections.

Definition of Portrait PID-C

Our definition of the Portrait section; a photograph of a person or group of people who are
aware they are being photographed.

Attention is drawn to the PSA Statement on Subject Matter which applies to all sections.

Breaches of Rules

Entrants are strongly advised to look at the PSA Ethics Policy which can be found at

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, exhibitions, on behalf of the judges, are allowed to request unedited or raw
files of the submitted image

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, on receiving reports from exhibitions of possible breaches, retains the right to investigate
in any way all complaints/suspicions of breaches of entry conditions, impose penalties 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.

If another party is submitting images on the entrant’s behalf, the entrant will still be held responsible for adhering to these Conditions of Entry (Entry Rules) and will be subject to penalties for any violations to these Conditions of Entry and PSA’s Statement of Ethics that may result.

If another party is processing images for an entrant or submitting images on the entrant’s
behalf, the entrant will still be held responsible for adhering to all Conditions of Entry including
the specific conditions in the relevant definitions.

NOTICE: When entrants fills in the Entry Form to submit an entry they will see the following feature to affirm they have read these Conditions of Entry

“I hereby confirm that I have read, understood and agree to the Conditions of Entry of this exhibition. I have read the PSA document to be found at https://psa-photo.org/resource/resmgr/pdf/exhibitions_/exhibition-entrants-agreemen.pdf . I am aware that PSA may apply penalties
for breaches of these Conditions of Entry”

Failure to agree will mean that the application will not proceed.
