Contest Rules

Beauty of Black and White ContestSometimes a black & white still photo and/or piece of art can be more breathtaking than any colored piece of art ever could.

So let's celebrate the beauty of black & white art.



*I am seeing a lot of sepia tone images coming through. A sepia tone image usually has a yellow cast to it.




Here are the rules:

1. Post any theme as long as it is black & white. SEPIA TONE IS NOT BLACK & WHITE. It must be black & white art or they will be removed. Sorry.

(Also be careful that your photos does not have blue undertones. Must be pure black & white. I had to remove one of mine, because it had blue undertones.)

(I realize that when black and white comes together it can bring about some gray undertones. Those are okay. I just want when others see your artwork, the first thing they think of is a black & white image.)

2. Any medium acceptable as long as it follows the above rules.

3. All artwork must be original.

4. No nudity, vulgar, and/or distasteful themes. They will be removed.

5. Post up to 5 images.



*I plan on submitting my own work in this contest, mainly for exposure. In the event my submission places in the top three...I will forfeit the share and bump the artists under me up one level (where the prizes are concerned), and the artwork that is in 4th position will receive the 3rd place prize.
