Black and White International Award 2017
Welcome to the 2nd edition of the Black and White International Award!
Candidates are called to enter their images in ANALOGUE or in DIGITAL format. Digital pictures will not necessarily have to be shot with cameras (as also pictures shot with any digital device will be accepted).
ROME will be both the departure and the arrival of the context as the first prize winners of Black and White International Photo Contest 2016 will be awarded trip and/or accommodation in the city.
Through the use of photography’s universal language the Black and White International Award aims to promote the dialogue among different cultures and people.
Furthermore the goal is to enhance on a large scale the divulgation and rediscovery of black and white art, a source of beauty and evocative power able to give immortality to images and to express every day life intensity and feelings.
The winners, runner-ups and 1o further photographers will have their images printed and exhibited in a Rome Gallery (Spazio Tetenal)
Our shortlist (winners, runner-ups and the first 50 photographers) gets promoted across our social media and blogs
