* Each author can participate with not more than 4 (four) photos in each category (total 12 photos)

– Definition Monochrome (FIAP)
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 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.
– Definition Monochrome (PSA)
A monochrome image is defined as having varying shades of no more than one color (various shades of that color from very light to very dark) but it may be any single color. Multi-toned images (various shades of two or more colors) and greyscale images with added an accent colour are not acceptable.
– Definition Computer Processed Photography:
The original image content could be altered with adjustments, scenes could be created with rearranging, replacing, adding or removing content from the original image/s. Photographs, which have been processed for the purposes of image enhancement, restoration or compression without altering the reality of the scene should be uploaded in Monochrome/Color categories.
