Welcome to our 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 Zebra Awards. With great prizes up for grabs, we hope the 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 Adams

Eligibility

The Zebra Awards is opened to any photographers who are 18 years and over. The competition will not distinguish between professionals and non-professionals.

Categories

  • Abstract and Contemporary
    Entries should be either abstract or unusual in its subject matter or depict visual image that does not have an immediate association with the object world. Such works may ” isolate a fragment of a natural scene in order to remove its inherent context from the viewer”, or may “be purposely staged to create a seemingly unreal appearance from real objects”, or may “involve the use of color, light, shadow, texture, shape and/or form to convey a feeling, sensation or impression”. Abstract and contemporary artworks usually carry meanings of “greater weight than its subject matter”.
  • Architectural
  • Fine Art and Open
    This is an open category. If not only allow the freedom of interpretation and subject choices, but also allow for entries from different medium other than photography, such as painting, digital art, etc. All non-photographic artworks must be photographed for submission, and the submitted images must still comply with the images restrictions in order to qualify for judging.
  • Landscape and Nature
    Landscape photography shows spaces and expanses within the world, usually vast and unending, rather than focusing on a specific object. Landscape photographs typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes. Nature photography refers to a wide range of photography taken outdoors and devoted to displaying natural elements such as landscapes, wildlife, plants, and close-ups of natural scenes and textures.
  • Nudes
    Celebrating the beauty of the human body.
  • People and Animals
    Subject matter of your artwork should feature people and/or animals.
  • Photojournalism/Documentary
    Capturing the moments as they happened. Every submission into this category must feature spontaneous subject or event that did not undergo posing, instructions, interruptions or interference from the photographer or third party.
