Photojournalism entries shall consist
of images or sequences of images with informative content and
emotional impact, including human interest, documentary and spot
The journalistic value of the image
shall receive priority over pictorial quality. In the interest of
credibility, images that misrepresent the truth and model or staged
set-ups are not permitted.
Techniques that add to, relocate,
replace or remove any element of the original image, except by
cropping, are not permitted. Techniques that enhance the
presentation of the image, without changing the photojournalism
content, are permitted. All adjustments must appear natural. Color
images can be converted to grayscale monochrome.
