CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION
The photographer can participate in all contests, but only once in each contest.
The photographer may submit the same photos for both the Singles and Series contests, as they will be judged separately.
Each photograph can be submitted only once for each contest. Copies will be discarded.
Photos may be taken anywhere in the world, including Brussels.
Photos previously published may be submitted for the BSPF.
In the Singles contest, a maximum of 10 photos may be submitted.
In the Series contest, each entry must consist of a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 7 photos. Judging will take into account the sequence of your entry (the numbering you give the series of photos when you upload them).
In the Photomarathon contest, there is no limit to the number of photos that can be submitted. However, these images can only be submitted on the day of the photo marathon contest.
All images submitted must conform to the concept of street photography: i.e. spontaneous photographs in random locations in public spaces, both indoors and outdoors (city, street, beach, train, park, restaurant, ...)
Staged photos will not be accepted.
The name of each file must consist of the photographer's first and last name, followed by a number. You do this as follows: FirstName_Surname_Numbering.jpg. Photos that do not comply with this will automatically be excluded from the contest.
Both black and white and color photos are accepted.
There is no restriction as to when the submitted image was taken. However, recent work is encouraged.
Photos may be taken with a digital, analog camera or cell phone. For submission through our website, analog images must be digitized.
The file format of photos submitted must be jpeg/jpg.
The file size of each photo should not exceed 5MB.
If selected, the organizer will ask to provide a higher resolution file. If this cannot be made available, participation in the exhibition cannot be guaranteed.
The longest side of the photos must be at least 3000 pixels in size.
Each photo submitted must contain the complete, unaltered EXIF data. This applies to digital photographs only and therefore does not apply to digitized film images.
Photos may not be altered or manipulated in post-production, with the exception of adjustments in the darkroom and/or the digital equivalent.
Removal of dust on the sensor and scratches on scans of negatives is permitted.
Limited cropping is allowed.
HDR images, watermarked images, artwork, illustrations, computer-generated or computer-edited photographs will not be accepted.
For the Photomarathon contest, only street photos taken in the Brussels Capital Region on the day of the Photomarathon and shared on Instagram on the same day using the hashtag #BSPFphotomarathon are eligible to win. People without an Instagram account can participate by sending the photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
