Open Rating Results

There's only one rule in this challenge: make it a black and white! We've teamed up with the fantastic La Noir Image – a documentation dedicated to monochrome photography that's run by The Phoblographer editor, Chris Gampat – and want to see your best black and white shots, whatever the subject. Subscriptions to La Noir Image will be given to the winners, and you can have your image printed in the magazine.

Please also note that La Noir Image is currently seeking funding to become an electronic magazine like you've never seen before. For less money than the price of a good glass of whiskey, you can get more inspiration for an entire year.

Subscriptions and exposure from La Noir Image up for grabs!

Prize details

The expert's first choice will win a one year premium subscription to La Noir Image which includes one issue a month and six special issues. The crowd's first place will win a one year subscription to the magazine when it comes out, which includes one issue a month. In addition, Chris Gampat, the editor and founder of La Noir Image, will pick his favourite five entries to be featured in the magazine.

La Noir Image is entering its second phase by launching a Kickstarter initiative to fund the development of a fantastic, interactive e-magazine for iOS devices, with planned expansion into Android in 2017.

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.
