In a spirited homage to the world of monochromatic artistry, the victors of the 2023 Black and White Photo Awards step into the spotlight. Esteemed as a globally recognized photography competition celebrating the magnetic charm of black and white visuals, this year’s rendition has exceeded all anticipations.
Commencing from January 1st to June 15th, the Black and White Photo Awards 2023 competition invited submissions, culminating in the majestic revelation of its champions on August 19th, synchronizing beautifully with World Photography Day. With an unprecedented participation, the event garnered nearly 1700 photographers representing no fewer than 92 nations. Collectively, they contributed approximately 3000 enthralling monochrome images, spanning five captivating categories: Architecture, Street, Portrait, Fauna and Flora, and Landscape.
In a spectacle of artistic prowess, Patrice Quillard from Froberville emerges as the “Absolute Winner” with his breathtaking opus titled My Copyright. Quillard’s lens captured a gelada, an elegant primate, in an arresting gaze. As Quillard elucidates, “Suddenly and for a brief moment, he turned towards me, looked at me intensely and I understood the full force of his dominance over his troops. It was an unforgettable moment for me, exactly what I was looking to bring out through a photograph.”
