Shooting in black and white is a practice of balancing light and shadows. Without colors to consider, it makes one mindful of composition, framing, and exposure—all essential concepts for a compelling image. The Monochrome Awards allowed us to appreciate the timeless beauty of black and white photographs.
Congratulations to the champions of Monochrome and thank you to everyone who participated! We'd also like to extend our gratitude to judges Tamara Skudies, Raymond Chin, Khalifa al Obaidly, Denise Skiadopoulos, Elisa Maccario, Hamish Gill, Gabriel Sanchez, Enrico Ratto, Vincent Pflieger and Luca Mercedes who lent their time and expertise to determine the best among the best documentary and travel photographs.
