Black and white images must include only the shades of black, white, and grey, while monochrome submissions must be like its namesake, a shade of only a single color. We are thrilled to announce, the 2022 competition recorded the highest number of entries compared to previous years!
Entries from the three categories namely, Animals, People, and Places, were judged by a 12-member pool of professional photographers with various niches. For 2022, this panel was comprised of SanDisk Professional Mentor Alex Cearns OAM, Adrian Cook, Lynton Crabb, Sophie Howarth, Mike Langford, William Long, Anthony McKee, Jayne Mclean, Marley Morgan, Michele Mossop, Matt Palmer, and Jackie Ranken.
For the Animal Category, Steve Nicholls won with the work called, “Pelican on the Defensive”, captured at Woodman Point in Western Australia.

Karen Waller emerged as the victor in the People Category with a dramatic shot entitled, “Marty”, a captured portrait of a man living in Adelaide in Southern Australia sharing his story about a tragic loss.
