Black & white category

Few things are as beautiful as a striking black and white wildlife photograph.

That’s what we’re looking for in this category – images that leave you breathless. Spotting ideal black & white photo opportunities in the field is an art, but the general rule is to look for high contrast – dark subjects with a light background or vice versa; animals with contrasting colours, like zebras; or contrast created by light and resulting shadows.

Try to evoke a sense of awe with your photos, highlight detail and texture, and think carefully about how you process your images.
