CAPA Digital Monochrome Competition



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.

CAPA 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

As a club, we will be selecting 6 images in at least 2 themes. All  in-camera, on-camera and post-processing techniques are permitted.
