Beautiful Winning Black And White Photos From The 2019 Monochrome Photographer Of The Year Contest

Grand Prize: Monochrome Photographer of the Year – Professional. The Mundari cattle camp By Trevor Cole from the United Kingdom

While the norm has become to embrace all things technicolor, nothing beats the classics. From iconic films like It’s a Wonderful Life and To Kill a Mockingbird, to the original works of Disney and other famous cartoonists, black and white imagery was and has always been the original color, telling superlative stories far before digital editing and graphics made their way into the arts. To those who have forgotten the impact that black-and-white schemes can have on artwork, the Monochrome Photography Awards are here to remind us in a way that we’ll never forget!

Showcasing stunning monochrome moments captured on camera by both professional and amateur photographers in a wide variety of categories, bringing out every glorious shade from white to black and back again. The 2019 winners of this competition will have you craving a taste of the golden age of art once more!
