continues to be two competitions for the less experienced (two stars or less)
and two for the more experienced (more than two stars) groups. Each group will
have a General PJ and a Themed PJ competition. That means each person will have
the opportunity to enter up to eight new mages (four in the General PJ category
in the Themed Category for the quarter). Again there will be no fee to
participate. The themed competition for Round 1 of 2019 is "Monochromatic" This means an acceptable PJ
image that meets the PSA Monochrome definition "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 in any single color. Multi-toned
images (various shades of two or more colors) and greyscale images with an added
accent color are not acceptable."

DEFINITION OF AN ACCEPTABLE PJ IMAGE: Photojournalism entries shall consist of images with informative content and emotional impact, reflecting the human presence in our world. The journalistic (story-telling) value of the image shall receive priority over pictorial quality. In the interest of credibility, images that misrepresent the truth, such as those from events or activities specifically arranged for photography or of subjects directed or hired for photography, are not eligible. Techniques that add, relocate, replace or remove any element of the original image, except by cropping, are not permitted. The only allowable modifications are removal of dust, scratches or digital noise, restoration of the existing appearance of the original scene, sharpening that is not obvious, and conversion to greyscale monochrome. Derivations, including infrared, are not eligible.
This activity is for images that have never been accepted in a recognized exhibition in order to help promote new work.
