Images (files) generated with AI software (or AI web platforms) are not accepted and are not subject to this contest.
A rare exception would be if such an image (or part of it) is present in the scene of the shot, but is an integral part of it and the story, and also does not dominate in the overall artistic impression of the final image. To be acceptable, images must be taken with a digital capture device or with the whoever of the known and popular analog photographic processes (then scanned and digitized). Raising the question of ownership of these now popular art forms, the official position of the legal world on the subject of AI is that “Art works created by artificial intelligence are not eligible for copyright protection”
So, with the declaration of authorship, each entrant confirm that do not use AI for the final images (files) in the salon participation.
