    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 2nd Zebra Award. With great prizes up for grabs, we hope The 2nd Zebra Awards will bring to light the marvellously diverse and vibrant visions of black and white photography from many amazing artists worldwide.

    The 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.

    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.

    Images must be in JPG/JPEG format, 8 bit, 1500pixels on the longest side, 72 dpi, and have maximum file size of 300KB. Colour space should be RGB or sRGB. Images must have no border, nor marks or logos identifying the artists. All images must be monochrome, i.e. grayscale or toning with just one colour. The colour space can be gray scale or RGB.

    The copyrights of submitted artworks will remain with the artists at all times.
