We consider professional photographers those who earn, or have earned, the majority of their income from photography, and who sell or publish their work regularly, and belong to professional photography organizations.
What is considered a series?
Two and more photographs that share the same theme or concept and same title. Make sure all your images in a series are strong. Your work will be judged as whole not individually.
Can I mail my submission?
Since all of our judging is done online, we no longer except mailed in submissions.
What size should the digital files be?
Digital submissions must be saved as .jpg, at 72 dpi, and minimum 1000 pixels on the longest side. No larger than 4 Meg.
What are the ‘Book’ and ‘Book Proposals’ categories?
The Book category is for designed and published photography books. The Book Proposals category is for photography books ready to be published, but without a publisher.
How should I submit an entry to the Book or Book Proposal Category?
Complete the online submission form in the same way as other categories and upload 8 images from the book as a sampling for the Jury–this should include the cover image and 7 other images from the book. You may also send in a PDF copy of the entire book to firstname.lastname@example.org
How can I pay for the photographs that I submit?
We accept Visa and Master cards or Paypal at the moment.
Can I enter one photograph into multiple categories?
Yes, you may enter the same photograph into as many categories as you want, and doing so may increase your chances of winning. There is a small fee for each additional category.
What is the P×3 Copyright policy & How can P×3 use my photographs?
The photographer always retain the copyright of his image. P×3 has the right to use your submitted photographs for the annual exhibition(s) and the P×3 book of the year, if you are a winner. P×3 may also use your work for marketing and promotional purposes directly related to P×3 only, with the photographer’s approval and appropriate citation/credit.
What is time of the final deadline?
We accept online entries until midnight, Central European Time, on the final deadline.
Where will the prints go after the exhibit?
P×3 will never sell your prints. We will have a traveling show for one year to publicize the winning images. The prints will be archived at P×3 safe storage for possible inclusion in “Best of 5, 10, etc. Years” shows. Photographers can request that P×3 destroy or return the prints. On the back of each print that we make or receive, there is stamp that says: “NON ARCHIVAL PRINTS, Not for sale. Return to P×3”
What happens if some one wants to buy my prints?
P×3 will put the interested person in touch with you or your gallery. P×3 is not in business of selling prints.
