Black and White Portraits

In association with Photocrowd

Open Judging Results

This contest offers a tantalisingly broad remit for the photographic portraitist. The only requirements are that the image is in black and white, and is a portrait study of a human subject. And some subtle colour toning is allowed, this being a traditional darkroom technique that often accompanied the art of producing black and white prints.

This Premium Contest is worth 3x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.
