Monochrome Photography is arguably a difficult but fascinating art form. Gaining extensive theoretical knowledge and rich experience is often not enough to rise above other equally good, competent and creative artists.
The connection of Black and White Photography with tradition and timeless values is beyond contestation. Since its infancy, black and white photography was not only the craft but primarily the art, where ideas conjured in the artist’s imagination is immortalized through the lens of their camera.
The Monochrome Awards is primarily aimed at people of whom photography is a passion and a way of life. It is a platform where professionals and amateurs can enter their shots amongst a sea of ambitious and creative community of photographers from around the world for a chance to win $3000 and an opportunity to show their work to an international audience.
Over a dozen categories allow entrants to specify definitions of photographic specializations and their large diversity allows adequate representation of photographers in several key areas. As a pillar and cradle of photography, Black and White photography is evidently a product of a great tradition. It requires experience, ability to discern dependencies and subtleties of tone, and most of all, imagination.
With Monochrome Awards, you can show your skills in traditional photography relying on plates and papers, or in the technique of wet collodion, as well as in digital technology. The creative process in black and white photography is extremely flexible. It allows you to present a single image countless times, often showing it in a different way. Only the ability to use a variety of shades of black and white, spreading from the confines of these two tones while enclosed in the perfect frame, allows the artist to achieve mastery.
