1. IMAGE AND ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: This exhibition is open to anyone; however,
an entry may be rejected when the Sponsor or the Exhibition Organizers, in their
reasonable discretion, believes the entry does not conform to exhibition rules and these
Conditions of Entry. Membership in any photographic organization is not required.
2. Sanctions: Entries will not be accepted from any entrant who is currently sanctioned
3. 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
permitted. Please contact PSA in the event of name changes or relocating to another
4. Image Creation: Entries must originate as photographs (image-captures of objects
via light sensitivity) made by the entrant on photographic emulsion or acquired digitally.
5. Certification: By virtue of submitting an image, the entrant certifies the work as his
or her own. Images may not incorporate elements produced by anyone else (for
example: clip art, images or art by others downloaded from the 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. 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.
6. Alteration and Computer Generation: Subject to Divisional restrictions (particularly
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. All parts of the image have to be photographed by the author
who is holding the copyright of all works submitted.
7. Re-use of accepted images: Once an image has been accepted in a PSA
Recognized exhibition, any identical image, or near identical image, may not, in future,
be entered or re-entered in any section of the same Division Star Ratings class in that
exhibition regardless of media, format, or title; may not be re-titled for entry into any
other PSA Recognized exhibition, including translation into another language.
8. Entry: 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.
9. Titles: Each image must have a unique title. 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), or words such as "untitled" or "no
title". Titles may not consist solely of numbers.
10. 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.
However, PSA members working on Galaxy and Diamond Star Ratings are allowed to continue using different titles of monochrome versions and color versions of the same capture that have already been accepted until the required number of acceptances for those titles has been completed.
rounds of judging in that section. Distribution of images will be in the same round order as submitted by the entrant.
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

Breaches of Rules
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.
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 sanction for any violations to these Conditions of Entry and PSA’s Statement of Ethics that may result.
