SECTIONS

OPEN COLOR (PIDC)

The subject matter is unrestricted  for PID images. An image is considered to be COLOR only if it gives the impression of having multiple color.

OPEN MONOCHROME (PIDM)

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 image. (For example by Sepia, red, gold, etc.)  A greyscale or multi-colored image modified or giving the impression of having been modified by partial toning, multi-toning or by the inclusion of spot coloring does not meet the definition of monochrome and shall be classified as a Color Work.

NATURE (ND)

Nature photography records all branches of natural history except anthropology and archaeology.
This includes all aspects of the physical world, both animate and inanimate, that have not been
made or modified by humans.
Nature images must convey the truth of the scene that was photographed. A well-informed person
should be able to identify the subject of the image and be satisfied that it has been presented
honestly and that no unethical practices have been used to control the subject or capture the image.

Images that directly or indirectly show any human activity that threatens the life or welfare of a
living organism are not allowed.
The most important part of a Nature image is the nature story it tells. High technical standards are
expected and the image must look natural. Adding a vignette or blurring the background during
processing is not allowed.
Objects created by humans, and evidence of human activity, are allowed in Nature images only
when they are a necessary part of the Nature story.
Photographs of human-created hybrid plants, cultivated plants, feral animals, domesticated animals,
human-created hybrid animals and mounted or preserved zoological specimens are not allowed.
Images taken with subjects under controlled conditions, such as zoos, are allowed.
Controlling live subjects by chilling, anaesthetic or any other method of restricting natural
movement for the purpose of a photograph is not allowed.
No modification that changes the truth of a Nature image is allowed. Images may be cropped but no
other technique that removes, adds or moves any part of the image is allowed.
Techniques that remove elements added by the camera, such as dust spots, digital noise and lens
flare are allowed.
Complete conversion of colour images to greyscale monochrome is allowed. Partial conversion,
toning and infrared captures or conversions are not allowed.
Images of the same subject that are combined in-camera or with software by focus stacking
or exposure blending are allowed. Multiple images with overlapping fields of view that are
taken consecutively and combined in-camera or with software (image stitching) are allowed.
Attention is drawn to the PSA Statement on Subject Matter which applies to all sections

For the purpose of this exhibition any border added to a Nature digital file must be a single
border of white or grey, no greater than 3 -5 pixels in width.

PHOTO TRAVEL (PTD)

A Photo Travel image expresses the characteristic features or culture of a land as they are found naturally.  There are no geographical limitations.  Images from events or activities arranged specifically for photography, or of subjects directed or hired for photography are not permitted. Close up pictures of people or objects must include features that provide information about the location.

Techniques that add, relocate, replace or remove any element of the original image, except by cropping, are not permitted.  The only allowable adjustments are removal of dust or digital noise, restoration of the appearance of the original scene, and complete conversion to greyscale monochrome. Other derivations, including infrared, are not permitted.  All images must look natural.

For the purpose of this exhibition any border added to a Photo Travel digital file must be a single
border of white or grey, no greater than 3 -5 pixels in width.

PHOTO JOURNALISM (PJD)

Photojournalism entries are images with informative content and emotional impact, reflecting the human presence in our world. The journalistic (story-telling) value of the image should receive priority over pictorial quality. Images that misrepresent the truth, such as those from events or activities arranged specifically for photography, or of subjects directed or hired for photography, are not eligible.

Techniques that add, relocate, replace, remove or change any element in the original scene, except by cropping, are not permitted. The only allowable modifications are removal of dust, scratches or digital noise and restoration of the appearance of the existing scene, or complete conversion to full monochrome. Other derivations, including infrared, are not eligible.

The Human Interest award is given to an image which depicts a person or persons in an interactive, emotional or unusual situation, excluding sports action.
