IGPOTY – Black & White Photo Project

The IGPOTY calendar begins with the brilliant Black & White Photo Project. Be creative, explore different botanical shapes and take advantage of the texture, patterns and shapes emphasised by the increased contrast of black and white.

You can use the existing IGPOTY main categories to theme your black & white images only within the realms of ‘garden photography’.

Through use of black and white, aim to capture a new experience, essence or feeling that colour will struggle to express.

Please note, Single Entries are judged and are eligible for the photo project awards and prize money. However, any Portfolios entered will be judged as part of the main IGPOTY Portfolios post October 31st and may qualify for that prize and associated RPS medals/certificates.

Black and White images only.
No monotones of other colours.
Only Single Entries can win the photo project. Portfolios will be judged as part of the main IGPOTY Portfolio competition.
