Would you like to see one of your photos published in an internationally acclaimed magazine devoted to black & white photography? We just published the first volume of winning photos from our Smartphone contest with 200 exceptional photos in ten categories. You can see some of the winning entries displayed here. You’ll never have a better chance to see your work published.
Low Cost: The cost for the chance to have your smartphone photography published is only $20 and covers the cost of entering 4 photos. Additional photos can be entered and the charge is only $5 for each additional photo.
Entry Bonus: All photography entered will be included in the galleries on our website. If you choose, each of your photos will contain a link to your website. This exposure alone is worth the small cost of entering.
Easy Entry: follow the instructions below to enter your photographs and pay the modest fee.
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.
- ELIGIBILITY: All photographers are eligible except employees and contract workers of Ross Periodicals.
PREPARING YOUR IMAGES: If at all possible, save images at least 5 inches wide 300 dpi, grayscale, and at the highest quality jpeg files only. If you cannot, simply send the images the size you shoot them. Don’t use WeTransfer or Google Docs because they expire too soon.
