Such entries that are not cleared or are still questionable after the entrant has presented evidence may be considered in breach of these Conditions of Entry and declined. Such entries may be referred to FIP for further investigation of possible ethics violations.
FIP retains the right to investigate in any way all complaints/suspicions of breaches of entry conditions, impose sanctions if deemed necessary, void the acceptances of any image found to violate the FIP rules, include the entrant’s name on the list of sanctions provided to salons, and share such investigations with FIAP.
