Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition
The Essence of Monochrome – International Photo Contest

The Essence of Monochrome – International Photo Contest

The Stockholm Diary is delighted to announce its II. International Photo Competition, titled The Essence of Monochrome, following the success of the first edition of the contest in Sweden. The aim of the initiative is to collect the finest and most exciting moments captured by beginners or professional artists and to provide an exhibition opportunity for a number of participants who are selected by an international jury committee. This year’s exhibition will be organized in the heart of Europe: Budapest, the mesmerizing capital city of Hungary.

The competition has a specific theme this year, the international jury is looking for snapshots in black and white, without any topical restrictions, that capture the essence of monochromatic moments. Black and white photographs require the viewer to use the power of creative imagination and interpret compositions individually. Relying upon pure emotions and constructions, the organizing committee believes in the essence of monochrome.

The words of Robert Frank summarizes the selection of this year’s theme: “There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment”
