Monochrome Photography Awards 2018 Shortlist Unveiled 

Each year, the Monochrome Photography Awards – a competition that celebrates black-and-white photography – hold a competition that rewards both professional and amateur photographers over the age of 18.

The event aims to celebrate the practice of monochrome photography and showcase talents from all over the world.If the absence of colour is a prerequisite for participation, this constraint can make your creativity speak for itself in various fields such as abstract, architecture, conceptual photography, fashion and beauty, fine arts, landscapes, nature, nude, people, photojournalism, retouched photos, portraiture and wildlife.

The contest winners receive $2,000 for the Professional Grand Prize winner and $1,000 for the Amateur Grand Prize winner. The works of the winners of each category are also published in an annual competition book.

With the winners just announced, the competition is back on track: if you would like to participate in the 2018 edition, simply visit the competition website. And to inspire you, all you have to do is admire the photographs that seduced the jury this year.
