upozornenie

Tým, že účastník/-čka predkladá svoje fotografie do salónu pod patronátom FIAP súhlasí bez výnimky a bez námietok, že si FIAP môže overiť či fotografie zodpovedajú pravidlám a definíciám FIAP-u aj keď účastník/-čka nie je členom FIAP. FIAP na to použije všetky prostriedky ktoré má k dispozícii. Akékoľvek odmietnutie spolupráce s FIAP, odmietnutie poskytnutia originálu súborov z fotoaparátu, poskytnutia dostatočných dôkazov, bude FIAP sankcionovať zverejnením mena účastníka, ktorý porušil pravidlá FIAP. Z dôvodu prípadnej kontroly zo strany FIAP sa doporučuje (v prípade digitálnej formy účasti), ponechať všetky EXIF údaje v predkladanej digitálnej forme fotografie.

Organizátori salóna sa zaväzujú zaobchádzať so zaslanými fotografiami s maximálnou zodpovednosťou, ale nezodpovedajú za prípadné poškodenie počas prepravy. Fotografie je potrebné doručiť na adresu usporiadateľa. Rozhodnutie poroty je nenapadnuteľné. Výsledky poroty a elektronický katalóg vo formáte “STROM 2018.pdf” budú zverejnené na internete: www.fotostrom.eu

Definitions

 

Definition of the black and white photography (monochrome)

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 Patro- nage. 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.

PSA Definition of Monochrome

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 an added accent color are not acceptable in Monochrome Class sections and must be entered in Color Class sections.

PSA Definition of Photo Travel

A Photo Travel image must express the feeling of a time and place, and portray a land, its distinctive features or culture in its natural state. There are no geographical limitations. Close up pictures of people or objects must include distinguishable environment. Techniques that add to, relocate, replace or remove any element of the original image, except by cropping, are not permitted. All adjustments must appear natural. Conversion to full monochrome is acceptable. Derivations, including infrared, are unacceptable.

Proposition

                       35.  International Photo salon STROM

Organizers: 
Občianske združenie STROM Ružomberok
Mesto Ružomberok
ŽSK -Liptovské múzeum v Ružomberku
Zväz slovenských fotografov

Preamble

The Photo Salon STROM is open for both amateur and professional photographers from all over the world.

The participant may be rejected when the organizer or their agent, according to their reasonable discretion, believes the entry does not conform to the exhibition rules and conditions as well as to ethical principles of the photographic companies FIAP, PSA, RPS and ZSF.

The photographs must be taken with a light capturing media, made by an applicant on emulsions for photographic uses or they must be received on a digital media.

By virtue of submitting an entry (the form can be found on www.fotostrom.eu), the entrant certifies the work as his own and permits the organizer 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 the organizer´s website.

The Photo Salon STROM assumes no liability of any misuse of copyright. The photographs can be obtained either digitally or via converting of analogue materials into digital ones through a digital reformatting process (e.g. by scanning).

NOTE:

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 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 and 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.

If at any time, it is determined in the reasonable discretion of the exhibition organizer or the judges before, during, or after the judging of an exhibition that an entrant has submitted entries where one or more images may fail to comply with these Conditions of Entry, including the stated definitions, the exhibition organizers reserve the right to delete the entry from the exhibition and void any or all acceptances or awards in connection with the exhibition. Fees may be forfeited or refunded in these circumstances. The entrant acknowledges that the decision of the exhibition organizers or the judges is final.

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.

The full definition of travel:

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

Drone Policy

The Board approved a new policy on the use of drones and it is available

here https://psaphoto.org/index.php?psa-policies&a=view&faq_id=1632. The policy has a legal section which basically requires members to follow whatever laws exist in the country in which they are using a drone. There is also an ethical component to the policy and it states :

One of the tenets of photography, is that the safety and well-being of

the subject, photographer and surroundings is of paramount importance over the capturing of the photograph. The purpose of this section is to prevent any interference with other individuals or animals which will or may cause a disturbance in their normal activity or disrupt the way an individual or

animal interacts with its environment.

1. May not fly a drone above people for the purpose of photographing

their activity, unless permission is granted in writing

2. May not fly or photograph animals in their natural habitat, especially nesting areas and locations where the animal is already under stress (winter survival, migratory feeding, protecting young). Photographing scenery/landscapes is permissible.

3. May not fly or photograph in any designated wilderness area.

kto sme

Sme občianske združenie, ktoré má za svoj cieľ propagovať fotografiu v oblasti prírody a ekológie.

V tejto činnosti pracujeme už 32 rokov. Za tento dlhý čas nám prešlo cez ruky tisíce fotografií, ktoré odborná porota  posúdila, vyhodnotila a ocenila tie najhodnotnejšie práce. Snažíme sa, aby človek, fotograf pranieroval krivdy na životnom prostredí so stredobodom pozornosti na strom, na strom bez ktorého si život na našej zemi nevieme ani predstaviť.

Nebránime sa ani pohľadom na hospodárske, umelecké a úžitkové hodnoty  stromu, ako drevnej suroviny a nemysliteľný život bez neho. Radi uvítame vaše postrehy z prechádzok po prírode či  meste kde bude zachytený v obrazovej kompozícii tento nevyhnutný a pre život nenahraditeľný STROM.
