Time to ditch the colour and enter your best black-and-white images in this popular round. The subject can be whatever you like. Remember a great monochrome image isn’t just about removing the colour, you’ll need to consider tones and textures, shapes and form to make the most of the medium.

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. In this contest, the entries are hidden until 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.
