A black and white work that has been entirely converted to a single colour shall be considered a monochrome work and may be included in the black and white category; this work may be reproduced in black and white in the catalogue of a Salon under FIAP Patronage. On the other hand, a black and white work modified by a partial shift or with the addition of a colour becomes a colour work (polychrome) and must be included in the colour category; this work must be reproduced in colour in the catalogue of a FIAP-sponsored Salon.

payment of prizes
payment of prizes
Cash prizes obtained by residents in national territory will be classified as capital gains for the purposes of Personal Income Tax and the full amount of the prize will be subject to the corresponding withholding according to the applicable legislation on the aforementioned tax at the time of payment.
Given the international nature of the competition, for cash prizes obtained by NON-residents in national territory, the provisions of the Double Taxation Agreements signed between Spain and the country of residence of the prize-winner will be applied, if such an agreement exists and express mention is made of the income obtained in this respect. Otherwise, the regulations established in the Non-Resident Income Tax of the country organising the competition (Spain) would apply. Currently, the current withholding for this concept and this tax (IRNR) is 24%, which the ASISA Foundation must pay to the Spanish Tax Authorities on behalf of the prize-winner. This percentage may vary if there are legislative changes, and the percentage in force at the time of payment will be applied to the full amount of the prize.
DOCUMENTATION NECESSARY TO PROCEED WITH THE PAYMENT OF THE PRIZE:
- Identification details of the winner.
- Identity document from the country of residence and/or passport.
- Tax residence certificate (necessary for NON-residents in national territory).
- IBAN/SWIFT of the bank account where the prize is to be paid.
- Certificate or proof of ownership of the bank account into which the payment is to be made.
- In the event of attendance in person at the prize-giving ceremony, a nominative cheque may be presented for the net amount of the prize received (the full amount mentioned in sections A to E of these rules minus the applicable tax withholding).
- The digital file(s) of the winning image(s) in the required size and resolution (60cm longest side and 300 dpi) must be sent within 10 days of the publication of the results in accordance with point 1 of the rules.
The deadline for the delivery of the aforementioned documentation will be 10 days from the communication of the awarded prize or selected work.
All the necessary documentation must be submitted in Spanish or English, the only two languages accepted.
Once the money transfer has been received in the winner’s account, the winner will return the receipt attached to the notification of the winner’s condition to the organisation.
In the event that all the aforementioned documentation is not provided within the period established for this purpose, the prize will be deemed to have been awarded without the possibility of any claim whatsoever against the ASISA Foundation.
