FOTOSEPTIEMBRE USA GUIDELINES

FOTOSEPTIEMBRE USA GUIDELINES FOR PARTICIPATION & REGISTRATION

OUR REGISTRATION GUIDELINES HAVE CHANGED. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS CORRECTLY.

All FOTOSEPTIEMBRE USA registrations are free.

FOTOSEPTIEMBRE USA is a photography and photography-based festival. Exhibitions of media that do not feature photography as the core element of their presentation and execution are not eligible for participation. Photo-based and photo-imprinted sculpture, textiles and other materials are acceptable if photography is the main component and focus of the work. Photos collaged onto paintings are not acceptable if painting is the dominant media. Multi-media exhibits that include only a nominal photography component are not acceptable.

Photographic documentation of exhibits and opening receptions is conducted at our discretion, and will not necessarily include every exhibition participating in FOTOSEPTIEMBRE USA.

Comprehensive documentation of exhibitions is conducted only for those exhibitions that represent the professional standards and interests of FOTOSEPTIEMBRE USA.

We have discontinued our Choice Awards. We no longer present certificates or cash awards in recognition of best professional practices. 

Also please note: 

FOTOSEPTIEMBRE and SAFOTO are privately owned Trademarks registered with the United States Patent & Trademark Office. All rights and usage reserved. 

Use of the FOTOSEPTIEMBRE and SAFOTO names and logos is allowed and restricted exclusively to the exhibitions and events registered with the festival by our posted deadline; all of which are featured in our Exhibitions Catalog and Quick Sheet, and in the Exhibitions & Events Calendar in our web site.
