|Exhibitions, formerly called Salons, offer an opportunity for photographers to exhibit their work with other photographers from around the world. Images that are accepted into exhibitions can be used to earn Star Ratings and ultimately PSA ROPA distinctions.
NOTE: Contact the Exhibitions Standards chair at firstname.lastname@example.org and the Ethics Review Advisor at email@example.com if you suspect any sanctionable infractions in exhibitions/salons.
Attention all PSA Exhibitors - Change in FIAP Rules beginning in 2018
The FEDERATION INTERNATIONALE DE L’ART PHOTOGRAPHIQUE (FIAP) has recently instituted a rule regarding retitling of color and monochrome images. This change in rule will affect any exhibitor entering an exhibition with FIAP patronage beginning in 2018.
In a FIAP document entitled SANCTIONS FOR BREACHING FIAP REGULATIONS AND “RED LIST,” the following statement is found:
Re-titling previously accepted images. Sanctions for “re-titling” will be imposed for instances where a previously accepted image or print has been given a different title and/or where a Colour version and a Monochrome version and/or a Print version and a Projected Digital Image version of the same image have been given different titles.
You may interpret this to mean that a monochrome image and a color image from the same capture are considered the same image and must have the same title. At present, if you are entering a PSA-recognized exhibition, you are permitted to retitle a color to monochrome conversion. But be careful, do not enter this image in a FIAP patronized exhibition.
