DOWLOAD A PRINTABLE PDF VERSION OF THESE REGULATIONS HERE COMPETITION OVERVIEW The   Fremantle   International   Portrait   Prize   (FiPP)   is   in   its   fourth   year in 2017. The following information outlines how the competition will be staged. The following contains information about: THE TWO SECTIONS (Cameras v Phones) ENTRY FEES PRIZES ENTRY FEES WHERE THE MONEY GOES RULES & REGULATIONS THE TWO SECTIONS (Cameras v Phones) Unlike    the    previous    three    competitions,    FiPP2017    will    feature    two distinct   divisions    designed   to   reflect   a)   the   rise   of   social   media   and the   use   of   smart   phones   in   the   community,   while   b)   still   acknowledging that digital cameras are as popular as ever. Phones A   first   in   2017,   one   division   of   the   FiPP   will   be   reserved   entirely for portraits produced using smartphones. Here are some important points about this section of the competition: This section will be called the FiPP-Phone  award. By    entering    the    FiPP-Phone    section    of    the    award,    entrants attest that a smart phone was used to create their image(s). Images   created   with   digital   cameras,   or   any   other   device   but a smart phone, are not eligible for FiPP-Phone. If   an   image   wins   the   FiPP-Phone   award,   and   it   subsequently turns   out   the   image   was   created   with   a   non-phone   device,   the image will be disqualified from the FiPP-Phone competition. P hone-created   images   may   be   entered   into   both   sections   of FiPP.   However,   the   image   may   be   entered   separately    into   both sections .   Entering   the   FiPP-Phone   section   does   not    count   as an entry to FiPP or vice versa. Entry is only permitted via the official entry portal. The   top   30%    of   entered   images   (as   ranked   by   the   judges)   will form the Long List  for the 2017 FiPP-Phone award. The   top   40    images   will   form   the   FiPP-Phone   Short   List    and   be featured   at   the   Showcase   exhibition   in   Fremantle   in   October- November 2017. The   winning   and   short-listed   entries   in   the   FiPP-Phone   will   not   be printed    for   the   Showcase   exhibition,   they   will   be   displayed   in the gallery space as an audio-visual spectacular. Both   sections   are   governed   by   the   RULES   &   REGULATIONS   set out   below   (except   for   FiPP-Phone   where   size   and   resolution requirements are specified). Cameras and Other Devices The main FiPP awards for 2015 is an open event. Here   are   some   important   points   (which   should   be   read   in   conjunction with the RULES & REGULATIONS below): The   FiPP   is   open   to   any,   and   all,   digital   portrait   images.   They can   be   created   using   smart   phones,   digital   SLRs,   other   digital cameras    and    even    be    old    printed    images    that    have    been appropriately digitized for entry. There is no time limit on when the image(s) were created. Entry is only permitted via the official entry portal. The   top   30%    of   entered   images   (as   ranked   by   the   judges)   will form the Long List  for the 2017 FiPP award. The    top    100     images    will    form    the    FiPP    Short    List     and    be featured   at   the   Showcase   exhibition   in   Fremantle   in   October- November 2017. Entrants   whose   image(s)   are   shortlisted   for   the   Showcase   will   be contacted for a hi-resolution copy of the image(s). ENTRY FEES Entry to the main FiPP2017  award will be $20 per image . Entry to the FiPP-Phone  award will be $10 per image . Phone-created    images    may     be    entered    in    both     competitions, however,   the   entry   fee   for   both   must   be   paid   and   the   image must be entered twice (once in each division).
