PSA Monochrome Definition:
An image is considered to be Monochrome only if it gives the impression of having no color (i.e. contains only shades of grey which can include pure black and pure white) OR it gives the impression of being a greyscale image that has been toned in one color across the entire image. (For example by Sepia, red, gold, etc.) A greyscale or multi-colored image modified or giving the impression of having been modified by partial toning, multi-toning, or by the inclusion of spot coloring does not meet the definition of monochrome and shall be classified as a Color Work. By virtue of submitting an image, the entrant certifies the work as his or her own and exposed or created all elements of the final image. Images may not incorporate elements produced by anyone else (for example: clip art, images, or art by others downloaded from the Internet), nor include image elements such as skies that are built into software or AI-generated images.
