What is it about monochrome photography that is so intriguing? Why are Ansel Adams' landscapes all the more breathtaking without color? Why does the simplicity of a black and white wedding photograph sometimes draw you in even more? Let's see how powerful monochrome can be. Submissions will be open from May 9th through May 24th, 2013. Voting and judging will occur May 24th through June 3rd, 2013.

One winner will be chosen by member voting.
One winner will be chosen by a guest judge.

These two winners will each receive a one year subscription to photo.net and a $100 Amazon gift certificate.

The photo with the most Facebook "likes" will receive a one year subscription to photo.net.

Some changes to the contest and some basic new rules
1. The contest is now open to subscribers only. This includes both submission and voting.
2. Please view the official contest rules.
