1st International Niederrhein Monochrome Photo Contest
Lichtmaler Niederrhein Photoclub - Member of the DVF

The competition is open only to digitalized images that have not yet been accepted at our „Niederrhein Fotosalon“. A maximum of 4 files per section may be submitted. There are two sections:

A - Black and White – Monochrome – Open Section
B – Black and White – Monochrome - Architecture / Technology

A black and white image that passes over from a very dark shade of grey (black) into a very light shade of grey (white) is a monochrome work consisting of various shades of grey. A black and white image that is completely toned in only one colour remains a monochrome work and belongs to the section black and white. A black and white image that is partially changed by toning or by adding a colour becomes a colour photo (polychrome) and is not admitted to judging.
An image can only be submitted in section A or B, not in both sections.
