FIAP definition of 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 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 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 color becomes a color work (polychrome) to stand in the color category; such a works requires color reproduction in the catalogue of a salon under FIAP Patronage.
FIAP Definition of Nature Photography
Nature photography is restricted to the use of the photographic process to depict all branches of natural history, except anthropology and archeology, 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 picture quality while maintain 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 animas, domestic animals, or mounted specimens are ineligible, as in any form of manipulation that alters the truth of the photographic statement. No techniques that add, relocate, replace, or remove 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 camera, such as dust spots, digital noise, and film scratches are allowed. Images used in Nature Photography competitions maybe divided in two classes: Nature and Wildlife. Images entered in weather phenomena and extant organisms as the primary subject matter. This includes images taken with the subjects in controlled conditions are not eligible in Wildlife sections. Wildlife is not limited to animals, birds and insects. Marine subjects and botanical subjects (includingfungi and algae) taken in the wild are suitable wildlife subjects, as are carcasses of extant species. Wildlife images maybe entered in Nature sections of exhibitions. All entries shall confirm to the stricter of these definitions for acceptances to be validated by all the International Organizations granting recognition or patronage.
FIAP Definition of Photo 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 images must appear natural.
