A Photography Salon is a Photography Competition hosted by a Recognized Photography Club and Judged by a Esteemed Panel of Jury. Each Salon is categorized either National or International according to their affiliation with either a National or an International Photography Society. E.g. Salons recognized by Federation of Indian Photography (FIP) are deemed National Salons in India, and only Indian photographers are allowed to take part. Whereas Salons Recognized by PSA, FIAP, RPS, GPU etc. are International Salons and are open to everyone.
