Animals in black and white

In association with Photocrowd

Open Rating Results

Sometimes, the most colourful kind of photography is black and white. This is especially true for animal photography where the exclusion of colour strips the image down and creates a tangible atmosphere. Remember to use light and tones, creatively, to really draw out the subject. A well-structured black and white photo conveys nuance and meaning more effectively than colour.

The expert and crowd winners will win a year-long Photocrowd subscription.

Prize details

The expert judge's winner and the crowd's favourite will both win a year-long Photocrowd Challenger subscription, worth £30. Our plans give you more ways to enjoy Photocrowd, including more entries into contests and reduced entry fees into a range of top photo awards.

  • If you're already on a subscription, it will be upgraded or extended.
How it works

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.

Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
