The enduring popularity of black and white landscape photography is clear from the continued appeal of icons such as Ansel Adams and Edward Weston whose work elevated the style to an art form. Although regular landscapes largely rely on the relationships between the colours, the intrinsic nature of black and white pares each scene down to a palette of shades of grey – putting added importance on tone, form and texture. Follow in the footsteps of the greats and take your own photo of 'Landscapes in black and white' for a chance to win.

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.
