What is a photography contest?
A photo contest is a competition between photographers. A duel, so to speak, in which different images face each other with the intention of winning the competition. And, of course, the prize that this usually entails. These contests can be organized in different ways. Thus, for example, they can be restricted to professionals, be only for amateur photographers… or as in our case, allow everyone who wants to enter. There are contests in which the vote is carried out by a jury, and others are open to the public voting for their favorite images. These contests can also be local, national or international photography awards. And, yes, you can call it foto awards.
What is black and white photography?
Black and white photography is one that is made up of the two named tones and the full range of grays that lies between them. It is the most popular category within monochrome photography and the origin of photography as such.
Today, the main use of this technique is in the art world. Millions of fans use it for aesthetic purposes, but also to increase the sensations of the capture. They use this technic managing to give extra value to their work. It is, of course, the only type of image that we accept at the Black and White Photo Awards.
