Entry Rules



The 54th Peña Fotográfica Rosarina International Exhibition is open to all photographers around the world, amateurs and professionals. However an entry may be rejected when the sponsoring organization or its agent, in its reasonable discretion, believes the entry does not conform to exhibition rules and conditions.


Submission of entries implies the acceptance of all conditions. The entrant must be the owner of all rights of the submitted works. All parts of the picture must be photographed by the author. By the sole act of submitting his/her images or files to a salon under FIAP Patronage, the entrant accepts without exception and with no objection the following terms:


- that the submitted images can be investigated by FIAP to establish if these obey to FIAP regulations and definitions even if the entrant is not a member of FIAP,

- that FIAP will use any means at its disposal for this undertaking,

- that any refusal to cooperate with FIAP or any refusal to submit the original files as captured by the camera, or failure to provide sufficient evidence, will be sanctioned by FIAP,

- that in case of sanctions following the non compliance with FIAP regulations, the name of the entrant will be released in any form useful to inform the breaches of the rules.

It is recommended to leave the EXIF data in the submitted files intact in order to ease eventual investigations.


The contest is open for all pictures, digitally modified or not.


In the general interest of the event, the reproduction of the remitted works is allowed in the printed or digital catalogue, free of charge, except when expressly prohibited by the author. In this matter the rules about copyright must be strictly followed. Under no circumstances the organiser is allowed to use the pictures handed in for other purposes. There is no possibility of recourse to legal action.


Entries must originate as photographs (image-captures of objects via light sensitivity) made by the entrant on photographic emulsion or acquired digitally. By virtue of submitting an entry, the entrant certifies the work as his/her own (aliases are not permitted). 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. The exhibition assumes no liability for any misuse of copyright. Images may be altered, either digitally or otherwise, by the maker, except in the sections Nature, Travel and Photojournalism

The subject is free. There are no restrictions as to subject matter except as outlined in the rules and definitions of specific sections, or specified by law in the country where the exhibition is held.

Monochrome FIAP Definition


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 color 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 a 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 color becomes a color work (polychrome) to stand in the color section; such a work requires color reproduction in the catalogue of a salon under FIAP Patronage.


Definition of “Traditional Photo” (TRAD)


A traditional photograph maintains the original image content with minimal adjustments which should not alter the reality of the scene and should appear natural. Rearranging, replacing, adding to or removing any part of the original image except by cropping is stricly forbidden.


Nature FIAP Definition:


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.

  • The story telling value of a photograph must be weighed more than the pictorial quality while maintaining high technical quality.

  • Human elements shall 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.

  • Scientific bands, scientific tags or radio collars on wild animals are permissible.

  • Photographs of human created hybrid plants, cultivated plants, feral animals, domestic animals, or mounted specimens are ineligible, as is any form of manipulation that alters the truth of the photographic statement.

  • No techniques that add, relocate, replace, or remove pictorial elements except by cropping are permitted.

  • Techniques that enhance the presentation of the photograph without changing the nature story or the pictorial content, or without altering the content of the original scene, are permitted including HDR, focus stacking and dodging / burning.

  • Techniques that remove elements added by the camera, such as dust spots, digital noise, and film scratches, are allowed.

  • Stitched images are not permitted.

  • All images must appear natural.

  • Color images can be converted to greyscale monochrome.

  • Infrared images, either direct-captures or derivations, are not allowed.

  • Images entered in Nature sections 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 the 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.
