MAKER'S NAME

PREVIOUSLY ACCEPTED IMAGES
An image (or a nearly identical in-camera duplicate) previously accepted in any PSA International 3D or Stereo Division section, regardless of media, is not eligible for entry in any 3D Division section of the 2013 PSA International.

Informative Note: PSA Recognized Exhibitions are not "THE" PSA International Exhibition. Images accepted in PSA Recognized Exhibitions but not in a past 3D or Stereo section of the PSA International Exhibition may be submitted in the 3D Division sections of the 2013 PSA International.

DUPLICATE IMAGES
The same image may not be submitted in more than one 3D Division Section of the 2013 PSA International regardless of the media. This means images submitted in one 3D Digital Section may not be submitted in the other 3D Digital Section, the 3D Slide Section of the 3D Print section. Please note: Different images with the same title or the same image with different titles will still be considered the same image.

ORIGINAL IMAGE STATEMENT
Entries must originate as photographs (image-captures of object via light sensitivity) made by the entrant on photographic emulsion or acquired digitally. By virtue of submitting an entry, the entrant certifies the work as his/her own and permits the sponsors to reproduce all or part of the entered material free of charge for publication and/or display in media related to the exhibition. This will include the Exhibition (audio-visual program) of the accepted images to be shown at the 2013 PSA Conference and may include use in the PSA Journal and low resolution posting of acceptances on a web site. Images where entrants do not give this permission will be disqualified. The exhibition assumes no liability of any misuse of copyright. All final work must be on photographic film, digital file, on photographic print material or digital print material. Digital images may be acquired digitally or scanned from traditional film to create a digital file.

An on-line 8½"x11" PDF Exhibition Catalog listing all acceptances in all four 3D Sections of the 2013 PSA International Exhibition is included with your entry fee.

TITLES
Each Image must have a unique title. Once an image has been accepted in any PSA Recognized Exhibition, regardless of section or Division, that same image, or a like “in camera” or a “reproduction” duplicate of that image may not be retitled if used in any other PSA Recognized Exhibition.

Titles will be not read aloud during judging.

Please limit titles to 35 characters including spaces and punctuation. The Entry Form software will clip any excess characters resulting in an incomplete title for inclusion in the Catalog. This will cause problems when applying for Star Ratings.

Titles used for a 3D image in one media (Slide, Print or Digital) must be used for that same image in all other 3D media.

IMAGE SIZE
3D transparencies must be accurately mounted in a mount 1-5/8 inches x 4 inches. Both 5 and 7 sprocket hole transparency widths are eligible. Permission to do necessary remounting for proper projection is a condition of entry.

3D prints must not exceed 4 inches x 7 inches mounted for viewing.

FILE NAMES

We recommend saving your .jpg images in a special folder on your computer using the image title as the file name. That will make it easier to pick the correct image when using the Entry Form browser to attach your images.
