Black and white is a different way of seeing the world.
It is often thought that black and white is a simple technique to manage in photography, but it is not.
Through black and white the photographer shows us his world in colours, playing with shades of gray, shadows and lights.
The greatest photographers have tried their hand at black and white photography and many of them have never abandoned this technique.

The Black and White Photo Contest has ended and we finally have the winners. Our judges chose the best 5 photographers. It was not an easy choice, the quality of the photos presented in this edition was very high. We are pleased to announce the winners of the Balck & White Photo Contest (Single Photo).

Congrats to all the photographers.

After many months of lockdown we asked photographers to go out on the street again with their cameras.
The result was impressive!
We have received many high quality photos. It was challenging for our judges…...
….but in the end we have the 5 finalists with the 3 winners!

We love photography and we love our photographers, for this reason we decided to break the rules and offer them a little help to ensure that they gain visibility through our channels.
Wherever possible we will always do it, because our mission is to help photographers have greater visibility.

Therefore for these two finalists will granted a 15% discount on the Entry Fee to the exhibition London 2021 Exhibition for other photos presented in this photo contest.

These months of lockdown have put a strain on us. We found ourselves locked in four walls overnight. We had to create new habits and routines. In recent months we have been asked to stay home and stay safe. For a photographer you know, it's really hard not to be able to go out on the street to shoot, that's why we at ArtFullFrame asked photographers to tell about their lockdown from their homes.

Many responded in an excellent and creative way. We didn't expect so many answers and above all the submitted works put us to the test because selecting only 5 finalists and then choosing only two winners was not easy.
We wanted to reward those who in just two photos managed to tell a story.

The top two finishers participated in the London Photo Show 2020!

Winners

1st Place

Ingrid Strain
Italy
Project
Summer Mind

Summer is a state of mind. Warm, benevolent light illuminates the mind, skin and heart. Every particle in the air touches us gently and nothing seems to hurt us. The disturbances of the soul smell of sun cream. I am happy and this is my summer.

2nd Place

Roberto Ruoli
Italy
Copywriter and street photographer freelance with a passion for graphic design. 26 years old, born and raised through dance and theatre in my beloved Florence. I’ve been living in Rome for four years due to my work as a copywriter in GTB and I must admit it: Rome is the most beautiful city in the world, afterward Florence. I am a man of few words, but usually, the ones I use are the right ones.
Project
Ammare

In Italy "summertime" is synonymous with "sea". And in southern Italy "ammare" is the expression used to indicate that a person intends, or is already, at sea. In the Italian language, however, "ammare" also means "to love"; therefore, the literal translation could be "love of the sea". These photos are intended to represent the love that Italians feel towards their sea. The summer holidays, especially, represent a sacred moment, in which to pour on the coasts of the peninsula and to enjoy the own moments relax wet from the own blue friend. For this reason I wanted to tell this passion through shots in which time seems to stop and in which the colors, especially of the sky and the sea, explode in a sort of pop painting.

3rd Place

Valentina Ficacci
Italy
Project
Yellow car

Yellow is the color of summer with empty cities, few people, few cars, little traffic.

4th Place

Antonio Perrone
Italy
I am an amateur and professional photographer and I am a university employee in the microwave and remote sensing field. I have been photographing for about 15 years and with the advent of digital I have become even more passionate. I have had some awards ranging from prizes in some competitions to some printed publications in magazines in the photography sector. In free time, in addition to photographing, I manage a photography portal: https://www.micromosso.com where I share ideas and photos with other enthusiasts. Since 2014 I hold the position of President of a Photographic Club based in Tivoli (Rome)
Project
Life is Beautiful

Polignano al Mare, Puglia

5th Place

Sue Oakford
United Kingdom
Project
Harvest

Summertime 2021 was like no other. Travel bans were place, fear of Covid ruled and the complicated testing regime for overseas travel had overtaken the desire to seek out distant climes. So I holidayed in Suffolk, a beautiful county in the UK that I had never visited before.
I was struck by the tranquillity of life, the large open spaces and the calmness of the farmlands as the countryside readied itself for Harvest. This set of 3 black and white images are not loud and brash, they study the gentle passing of time over 7 days in the summertime.
