Noir Blanc 21

ENTER CONTEST

Not just another photography contest, NOIR BLANC 21 is a bold and modern international event showing off the works of new and emerging black and white portrait photographers and their creative teams from around the world.

We’re on the lookout for extraordinary portraiture work that captures the dynamic relationship between subject and photographer - presented in black, white and all the tones in between.

Finalists and winners will be announced in June 2021, ahead of each entrant’s work being exhibited in Paris, Milan, London, New York, Los Angeles and Melbourne

Aside from the incredible opportunities and cash prizes that come from winning NOIR BLANC 21, having your work exhibited in Paris, Milan, London, New York, Los Angeles and Melbourne places you miles above your peers, while at the same time providing real opportunities for gallery sales.
