Entries in the monochrome section must comply with the FIAP definition of monochrome:
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 Patronage. 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.

Damage or Loss

While the greatest care will be taken of entries the Society cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage.


By virtue of submitting an entry, the entrant certifies the work as his own (aliases are not permitted) and permits the sponsors 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 a website. The exhibition assumes no liability for any misuse of copyright.


All accepted images will be published in the printed catalogue (FIAP 4/5* since 2019). The organisers accept no liability for any customs dues that may arise from the delivery of the catalogues. Although the catalogues are deemed to be of no commercial value, some countries levy a customs duty upon them.. Payment of this is entirely the responsibility of the recipient - if you wish to avoid this by foregoing receipt of a printed catalogue you must notify us before 1st September 2021 - a PDF version will also be made available on the website.

Data Storage

It is a condition of entry, that permission is given to store information from the entry.

FIAP Investigations

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.
