Techniques that add to, relocate, replace or remove any element of the original image, except by cropping, are not permitted. Techniques that enhance the presentation of the image, without changing the photojournalism content, are permitted. All adjustments must appear natural.

Below you can find the results of the 2019 DIGA Circuit in a PDF document which contains the outcome of all entrants’ images which had at least one acceptance! Any images without one of more acceptances have been removed.
The 6 columns of the right side (presented left to right) represent the six separate shows, starting with the Atlanta, the Dixie, the Peachtree, the Rome, the Tate and in the very far right column is the Woodstock show. The letter codes for all the shows are ‘A’ = acceptance, ‘H’ = Honorable Mention, ‘M’ = a circuit medal presented by the judging panels, and the ‘G’ represents the winner of the Best of Show, a PSA medal.
2019 DIGA entrants:
As of today all the USA entrant awards have been sent out and should be in the hands of the entrants, and all the non-USA entrants who did NOT win a medal have been put in the post with HM ribbons. There are about 60 envelopes ‘stuffed’ with letters and medals (to non-USA entrants) ready to go when additional HM ribbons arrive. This arrival is scheduled for early next week, as the company who produced them is on partial shut down!
Sorry for the delays!
