RULES
 
This regulation has been prepared in accordance with the recommendations of PSA and ISF.

SECTIONS: There are 2 sections:
- A = Open Monochrome 
- B = Open Color 
An image is considered to be Monochrome only if it gives the impression of having no color (i.e. contains only shades of gray which can include pure black and pure white) OR it gives the impression of being a greyscale image that has been toned in one color across the entire image. (For example by Sepia, red, gold, etc.) A greyscale or multi-colored image modified or giving the impression of having been modified by partial toning, multi-toning or by the inclusion of spot coloring does not meet the definition of monochrome and shall be classified as a Color Work.
 
WORKS: Each author may submit up to four different works in each section. The works will be presented to the judges at random.
Images accepted in a previous ISF World Cup or which, in the opinion of the organizers, are too similar to those accepted in a previous ISF World Cup, will not be judged.
Any image with a signature, a logo or a sign of recognition will be refused.
The entrant can submit the images created on film-based photography or digital medium but all images must be produced through photographic techniques.
All images must be the full property of the author who may not incorporate elements produced by others and be guaranteeing the image rights of people appearing on the pictures. Any changes on the original image must be performed by the author.
