BREACH OF CONDITIONS OF ENTRY

If the exhibition determines before, during, or after the judging that an entrant has

submitted entries where one or more images fail to comply with these Conditions

of Entry, including the stated definitions, the exhibition reserves the right and discretion

to delete the entry from the exhibition and void any or all acceptances or awards.

Fees may be forfeited in these circumstances.

In order to ensure that images comply with the Conditions of Entry and definitions,

the exhibition may carry out checks on the images to make sure 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.

This may involve asking the entrant to provide originally captured image(s), with EXIF

data intact, by a set deadline. The questioned image(s) of any entrant failing to comply

with such a request for the original image(s) 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, 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.
