Competition 1 - Monochrome and Open

1st - A Grade: Set Digital - Platja Sant Tomas © Leo Loque

Competition results for our first round of competition for 2024 - Monochrome and Open. Our judge for this round was Ian Bock.

We welcome the return of prints in this competition and throughout this year. Thank you to all members entering in both formats.

For the purposes of this competition the set subject of "Monochrome" was defined as:

An image is considered to be Monochrome only if it gives the impression of having no colour (i.e. contains only shades of grey which can include pure black and pure white) OR it gives the impression of being a greyscale image that has been toned in one colour across the entire image. (For example, by Sepia, red, gold, etc.) A greyscale or multi-coloured image modified or giving the impression of having been modified by partial toning, multi-toning or by the inclusion of spot colouring does not meet the definition of monochrome and shall be classified as a Colour Work (Definition via the APJA).
