The smartphone has revolutionized and popularized the art of taking photographic images, but not everybody can capture a scene worthy of the subject matter. We encourage you to record your favorite subjects with your smartphone and submit them for our new contest.
The winners will have their images featured in a new 160-page issue of Black & White devoted exclusively to contest winners. This special issue will be added to all subscriptions at no extra charge. We can accept only one entry per person with no more than ten photos per entry. Your entry must arrive by June 30 to be included.
Submissions accepted from 12/01/19 to 10/31/20
Although we have photo contests for the broad categories of single images and portfolios, readers have suggested contests limited to the method of exposure or the time period when a photo was captured. We have come up with a blend of old and new which offer an opportunity to a variety of photographic interests.
Alternative Darkroom Processes
Alternative Digital Processes
Pinhole/Plastic Camera Imagery
The narrow focus of each contest means fewer entries and increases the chance your image will be selected. While the winners won’t be featured in a Special Issue, they will get prominent representation in regular issues of Black & White. Adding more pages to each issue will allow us to dedicate 16-24 pages to display winning photos. Each of the four con- tests will have a dedicated section in one of the four regular issues of Black & White. The added pages of award-winning photography will be an added bonus for our readers.
Submissions accepted from 07/06/20 to 01/15/21
