Eligibility & Rules

» Photojournalism Definition


Photojournalism entries are images with informative content and emotional impact, reflecting the human presence in our world. The journalistic (story-telling) value of the image should receive priority over pictorial quality. Images that misrepresent the truth, such as those from events or activities arranged specifically for photography, or of subjects directed or hired for photography, are not eligible.

Techniques that add, relocate, replace, remove or change any element in the original scene, except by cropping, are not permitted. The only allowable modifications are removal of dust, scratches or digital noise and restoration of the appearance of the existing scene, or complete conversion to full monochrome. Other derivations, including infrared, are not eligible.

When Human Interest is specified, those images depict a person or persons in an interactive, emotional or unusual situation, excluding sports action.

Attention is drawn to the PSA Statement on Subject Matter which applies to all sections.

In order to help promote new work, this activity is for images that have never been accepted into a PSA-­recognized exhibition.
