Open to photographers with a gold or silver ranking. There are two other 'Black and white portraits' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
The best black and white portrait photographers have a good understanding of the powerful emotional connection and mood a monochrome image can portray. Although anything black and white may seem more limited than colour, black and white photography is a very versatile medium with plenty of techniques.
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.
