Landscapes in black and white

In association with MindShift Gear

Open Rating Results

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.

The expert judge's chosen winner will take home Mindshift Gear TrailScape 18L camera backpack, and the crowd's favourite will take home a L.Type by Lumejet print.

Prize details

The expert judge's chosen winner will take home Mindshift Gear TrailScape 18L camera backpack ($169.99). The TrailScape offers a spacious interior, allowing for plenty of photo gear, yet maintains a slim and compact profile. As an outdoor photographer, you always carry extra gear on your adventure, so lash points and dedicated compartments for a light jacket or lunch are essential. Laptop and tablet slots come in handy when you travel. And the TrailScape is built for comfort with a padded shoulder harness for longer hikes.

The crowd-vote winner will receive a L.Type by LumeJet voucher worth over £30 - earning you either a high-quality 1m print or equivalent value products!

L.Type by LumeJet voucher may be used against any online order and international shipping in a single transaction at within 28 days.

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.
