The Black and White Photo Awards 2022 is a newly-created international photography contest designed to recognize and reward talent in the fields of Black and White Photography. This year’s inaugural edition of the competition has now concluded, with an image of a cheetah and cubs claiming the top spot.
The jury comprised of professionals in the field of black and white photography, including assistance from Haida and the team of NCJ Media Solutions. The jury made its decision public on August 19, coinciding with World Photography Day.
Winner of the special prize for creativity was awarded to Dusty Cooper for his image Levitate, that displays three separate exposures of a dancer mid-performance. “My photography and love for dance collide and I think my passion for both shows in my work” he shares.
Haida, in partnership with the competition, supplied one additional winner with a Kit 3 ND filter valued at around 300 euros as a reward, and also selected one entry to receive the Haida Special Award, which was granted to photographer George Digalakis for his image Echoing Spaces.
There were winners in several categories. And this photo above by Hector Ballester Ballester won in the category of “Architecture”.
In the category of “Street” Photography, the award was won by: Saurabh Sirohiya.
In the category of “Landscape” photos in black and white, the winner was: Vasilis Livanos.
In the category of “Portrait”, the winner of this was Kazutoshi Kawakami, with his photo titled: Pattern.
In the category of “Fauna and Flora” this winning photo taken by Enric Adrian Gener was the winner. Titled: “Mobulas in the Mediterranean Sea”
In this first edition of the competition, more than €1700 in prizes were distributed to the winning photographers, a figure that the team of organizers expect to exceed in the upcoming 2023 edition of the competition. The team say they are already working on establishing the next edition, though little is known on the entry details and fee, or when we’ll be able to apply.
