Contest Rules

Not Quite Black and White
Since so many people had trouble following the rules, I'm closing this early and letting voting start. I'll re-run this contest soon with a limit of 1 or 2 photos per photographer so I can better monitor the entries, and also so there are a reasonable number of photos for voters to go through.


Here's a contest for photos that look black and white, but that were NOT SHOT IN BLACK AND WHITE. If it looks like a straight black and white photo, I will delete it. Please read all rules below.

1) All photos should be full color images (not shot in black and white, sepia, had color removed in post-production, etc.)

2) Some slight color is permitted, but it should be a tiny portion of the photo just so we know it's not a true black and white image - see the sample photo for an example.

3) No silhouettes for this contest.

4) DIGITAL MANIPULATION IS NOT ALLOWED! You can of course adjust contrast and sharpness, but the idea is to have captured a scene in the real world that is mostly colorless.

5) You can submit up to 10 images.

I will make the call on any images that I don't think meet the spirit of the contest. The first images submitted will be my own so you can get an idea of what the contest is all about.

Voters can vote for as many images as they please.

Thanks for participating!
