Documentary in black and white

In association with L.Type

Open Rating Results

Although documentary photography can, and should, be done in any colour, there's a certain historic legacy surrounding black and white documentary photos. This is a medium that takes away all the distractions of colour and enables the viewer to focus in on the primary subject and its tones, textures and shapes. Monochrome shots are a great way to carry a story - so why not try it out for yourself.

The crowd's favourite wins premium L.Type prints worth over £30.

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.
