PSA Travel Definition

 

“A Photo Travel image expresses the characteristic features or culture of a land as 

they are found naturally. There are no geographic limitations. Images from events or 

activities arranged specifically for photography, or of subjects directed or hired for 

photography are not appropriate.

 

Close-up pictures of people or objects must include features that provide information about the environment. Techniques that add, relocate, replace or remove any element of the original image, except by cropping, are not permitted. The only allowable adjustments are removal of dust or digital noise, restoration of the appearance of the original scene, and complete conversion to greyscale monochrome. Other derivations, including infrared, are not permitted. All allowed adjustments must appear natural.”

 

NOTE: Portraits of people which do not include sufficient environment are liable to be 

disqualified as not meeting the concept of 'features that provide information about the 

environment'.

 

NOTE: Images which have been too 'worked' or 'processed' and no longer look like 

photographs are liable to be disqualified as not 'appearing natural'.
