Black and White (Young APOY)

Part of Young Amateur Photographer of the Year 2021

Open Judging Results
Brief

This free-to-enter category is part of the Young Amateur Photographer of the Year 2021 awards, open to photographers aged 13-21.

Removal of colour focuses both the mind and the eye on the subject. Composition, framing and lighting all need to be spot-on and given careful consideration – it’s not a case of simply desaturating your images. Successful photographers of the genre often say that they think in a different way in the first place – learning to see in monochrome is half the challenge. Any subject can be submitted in our black and white round, so this is your opportunity to really get creative.

There are £3,000 (GBP) worth of vouchers to win in Young APOY 2021, supplied by sponsors, MPB, plus the title of Young Amateur Photographer of the Year 2021. Click the 'Prize details' tab for more information.

Prize details

The winner of each round in Young APOY 2021 will take home a £250 (GBP) voucher from MPB, and will be crowned Young Amateur Photographer of the Year 2021.
