CAPA Digital Monochrome Competition


  Submit by 14 Feb 2020


For this competition, CAPA is using the definition of Monochrome as defined by the Fédération Internationale de l’Art Photographique’s (FIAP) and is as follows:

A black and white work fitting from the very dark grey (black) to the very clear grey (white) is a monochrome work with the various shades of grey. A black and white work toned entirely in a single colour will remain a monochrome work. On the other hand a black and white work modified by a partial toning or by the addition of one colour becomes a colour work and is not eligible for monochrome.

This competition will have five themes and each will be judged separately:

  • Individual/Groups (street photography is included)
  • Landscape, cityscape, seascape
  • Architecture (inside or outside)
  • Flowers or Plants (wild or cultivated)
  • Animals/Birds

Each entrant MUST enter at least 1 image in at least 2 themes. All  in-camera, on-camera and post-processing techniques are permitted.
