This competition distinguishes between professional and non-professional photographers, highlighting the monochromatic charm that unites them. Bill Pack has emerged as the standout professional winner, securing the title for his mesmerizing “CarScapes” series. In this collection, classic automobiles transform into alluring entities through his inventive use of lighting and composition.

In a parallel category, the non-professional division celebrates the poignant beauty found in everyday experiences, exemplified by Serkan Dogus’s moving portrayal of a shepherd’s journey in Turkey, which claimed the coveted top prize.

Now in its second year, the reFocus Awards encompass a wide range of categories, including abstract, aerial, film/analog, and people. The professional category awards a generous $2,500 cash prize to the winner, while their non-professional counterpart receives a notable $1,500 in recognition of their exceptional photographic talent.
