The 3rd Zebra Awards
Description: Welcome to our 3rd Annual Zebra Awards - we are seeking our very own TZIPAC Black and White Photographer of the Year.
Black and white photography is as simple as it is complex, carefully weaving streaks of light into the black-unknown, giving rise to lines, shapes, textures, emotions and stories. TZIPAC is proud to celebrate this magic of black and white photography with The 3rd Zebra Awards. With great prizes up for grabs (please see below), we hope The 3rd Zebra Awards will bring to light the marvellously diverse and vibrant visions of black and white photography from many amazing artists worldwide.
"Dodging and burning are steps to take care of mistakes God made in establishing tonal relationships." Ansel AdamsEligibility
The 3rd Zebra Awards is opened to any photographers who are 18 years and over. The competition will not distinguish between professionals and non-professionals.
How it works
The 3rd Zebra Awards' entry process is split into two stages.
Stage 1 entry fee is just $1 per image with the judging being carried out by the TZIPAC Editorial team. The very low entry fee is designed to encourage a broader range of artists to participate, in the hope of discovering a multitude of marvelous artworks from budding undiscovered artists as well as established professionals, without geographic boundaries or limitations. Achieving a status of Stage 1 Accepted will allow you to promote your artwork with our simplistic E-badge until the final results are announced.
All Stage 1 Accepted images will be invited for ongoing submission to Stage 2 at a cost of $20 per image, with the total fees capped at $100. Stage 2 will be judged by our specially invited Juror(s) whose scores will determine the Finalists, Category Winners and the TZIPAC Black and White Photographer of the Year.
TZIPAC look forward to seeing and showcasing the diverse and numerous artworks that will be submitted and the passionate flares and creativity of participating artists.
