Photojournalism Interclub Competition

Mike Waring!

Photojournalism entries shall consist of images with informative content and emotional impact, reflecting the human presence in our world. The journalistic (story-telling) value of the image shall receive priority over pictorial quality. In the interest of credibility, images that misrepresent the truth, such as those from events or activities specifically arranged for photography or of subjects directed or hired for photography, are not eligible. Techniques that add, relocate, replace or remove any element of the original image, except by cropping, are not permitted. The only allowable modifications are removal of dust, scratches or digital noise, restoration of the existing appearance of the original scene, sharpening that is not obvious, and conversion to greyscale monochrome. Derivations, including infrared, are not eligible.

Human Interest
Definition: Human Interest images depict a person or persons in an interactive, emotional, or unusual situation, excluding recreational or sports action.

Mike Waring (seen right) is the co-ordinator for the PJ Interclub Competition and he would welcome images from club members.  Remember many of the images submitted for both the People and the Illustrative club competitions might be eligible for PJ competitions – the only proviso is that they must meet the above definition particularly with reference to manipulation. Email images to him at photojournalism@hoylakephoto.org.
