black and white photo of two zebras fighting in Etosha National Park, Namibia by Morgane Sevellec

Black & White Award Editors’ Picks of January 2023

Following the results of the last Black & White photography award, judged by English artist Nick Brandt, we want to share some of the best competition entries that didn’t make it to the final round, but showed a remarkable variety of skills, creativity, and impressed the editorial team in their overall quality.

Zebras locked in a violent tussle in a Namibian national park; low clouds graze a rugged Italian landscape; two young Mentawai men photographed in the dense Indonesian jungle with which they share a deep and enduring bond: each of these deeply absorbing images displays remarkable skill and artistry, and demonstrate the profound potential of monochrome photography.

Published February 15, 2023 - Congratulations to all selected artists: Thomas De Franzoni, Anastasia Petrovic, Michel Ghatan, Jacopo Maria Della Valle, Korbinian Grad, Jc Calingo, Tilak Nathwani, Ignacio Leonidas, Morgane Sevellec, Sarah Louise Kinsella, George Schober, Jeff Wade, Marina Mikhova, Rhonda Bratton,
