FIAP/FIP DEFINITION OF MONOCHROME :

A Black and white work fitting from the very dark grey (black) to the very clear grey (white) is a monochrome work with 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.

FIAP/FIP   DEFINITION OF COLOUR PHOTOGRAPHY:

Entries must originate as photographs (images captured of objects via light sensitivity) made by the entrant on photographic emulsion or acquired digitally. Pictures on any subject including creative or experimental images can be submitted. The use of Computer-generated graphics is totally restricted except in the Creative thematic section. All elements of the image must have been shot by the author. No part of the image should have been taken from Net or another person’s image. Use of some filters available on the net is permissible. Same images either colour or mono in two different sections of the same Salon will result in disqualification for both images.

FIAP/FIP DEFINITION OF NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY:

Nature Photography is restricted to the use of the photographic process to depict all branches of natural history, except anthropology* and archaeology*, in such a fashion that a well-informed person will be able to identify the subject material and certify its honest presentation. (Suggested*: An example will be helpful to the New Jury). The storytelling value of a photograph must be weighed more than the pictorial quality while maintaining high technical quality.

  1. Human elements must 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.
  1. Scientific bands, scientific tags, or radio collars on wild animals are permissible.
  1. Photographs of human-created hybrid plants, cultivated plants, feral animals, domestic animals, or mounted specimens are ineligible.
  1. Techniques that add, relocate, replace or remove any element of the original image, except by cropping, are not permitted. Conversion to infrared, either by digital technique or by original technique is not allowed. Stitching of two or more images is not permitted.
  1. Complete conversion to greyscale Monochrome is allowed but without partial or complete toning.
  1. It is perfectly legal to remove dust, flares, or digital noise. Minor global colour/tone correction is OK as long as it is not selective and the final image looks natural but not dramatic. Dodge and Burn tool is for you only but uses it judiciously. Selective darkening of the background is prohibited. Techniques like panning, slow shutter speed, or in-exposure zooming are part of your creativity. The use of filters like Polarizers and NDs is ok.
  1. Drone Photography in the National Parks of India is illegal except with prior written permission from the concerned authorities.
  1. The welfare of the subject is extremely important. Use of live bait is totally prohibited. Relocated nest is a big NO-NO and jury members should not award Nest images. Images entered in the Nature section 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.

Wildlife Where exhibitions or competitions have a Wildlife Section or are giving a Wildlife Medal the following applies:

Images entered in Wildlife sections meeting the Nature Photography Definition above are further defined as one or more extant zoological or botanical organisms free and unrestrained in a natural or adopted habitat. Landscapes, geologic formations, photographs of zoo or game farm animals, or of any extant zoological or botanical species taken under controlled conditions are not eligible in Wildlife sections. Wildlife is not limited to mammals, birds, and insects. Marine subjects and botanical subjects (including fungi and algae) taken in the wild are suitable wildlife subjects, as are carcasses of extant species.

FIAP/FIP DEFINITION OF PHOTO TRAVEL:

 Photo Travel image must express 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 adjustment is removable of dust or digital noise, restoration of the appearance of the original scene, and complete conversion to grayscale monochrome. Other derivations, including infrared, are not permitted. All allowed adjustments must appear natural.

  1. A travel image depicts features of a culture, place, or people as found naturally, anywhere in the world.
  2. Images of individuals or groups must show their environment or location.
  3. The image should not be a SETUP image and it should not be a directed image.
  4. It should not be from a PHOTO WORKSHOP where a troupe dances for the workshop organizer or HORSES are made to run in dust or water or an individual shows his acrobatics on payment of a fee.
  5. Many monasteries have religious festivals with dances etc and it is perfectly legal to submit such images though you may have paid an entry fee. The same is true for ballet and other stage shows.
  6. Images shot at fairs where the subject is obviously posing for you, with or without payment, are only good for the pictorial section. On the other hand, a candid image is good for the PT section.
  7. Techniques that add, relocate, replace or remove any element of the original image, except by cropping, are not permitted. Conversion to infrared, either by digital technique or by original technique is not allowed. Stitching of two or more images is not permitted.
  8. Complete conversion to greyscale Monochrome is allowed but without partial or complete toning.
  9. It is perfectly legal to remove dust, flares, or digital noise. Minor global colour / tone correction is OK as long as it is not selective and the final image looks natural but not dramatic. Dodge and Burn tool is for you only but uses it judiciously. Correction of perspective is perfectly legal. Techniques like panning, slow shutter speed, or exposure zooming are part of your creativity. Filters like Polarizers and NDs are ok but star effect or rainbow filters are illegal.
  10. Drone photography is OK as long it is legally permissible in that part of the world. In India use of the DJI Mavic Mini model of the Drone is perfectly legal, except in areas where Drone Photography is prohibited by the authorities like National Parks, etc.
  11. Finally, be sensitive to the community or people whom you are shooting. Care for your subjects and care for your fellow photographers as well. If someone doesn’t wish to be photographed, please respect the person’s feelings and greet her or him with a sweet smile before parting ways.

FIAP/FIP DEFINITION OF PHOTOJOURNALISM :

  1. Photojournalism entries should be images with informative content and emotional impact, reflecting the human presence in our world. The journalistic (story-telling) value of the image shall receive priority over pictorial quality. In the interest of credibility, images that misrepresent the truth, such as those from events or activities specifically arranged for photography or of subjects directed or hired for photography, are not eligible.
  1. Techniques that add, relocate, replace or remove any element of the original image, except by cropping, are not permitted. The only allowable modifications are the removal of dust, scratches, or digital noise, restoration of the existing appearance of the original scene, sharpening that is not obvious, and conversion to greyscale monochrome. Derivations, including infrared, are not eligible. All images must look natural.

HUMAN INTEREST DEFINITION:

Human Interest images depict a person or persons in an interactive, emotional, or unusual situation, excluding recreational or sports action.
