Scope of Competition
For this year’s competition, we have introduced some new themes to challenge and stretch your photography skills and abilities.
For this competition, CAPA is using the definition of Monochrome as defined by the Fédération Internationale de l’Art Photographique’s (FIAP) and is as follows:
A black and white work fitting from the very dark grey (black) to the very clear grey (white), is a monochrome work with the various shades of grey.
A black and white work toned entirely in a single colour, will remain a monochrome work able to stand in the black and white category.
On the other hand, a black and white work modified by a partial toning or by the addition of one colour becomes a colour work (polychrome) to stand in the colour category.
CAPA has provided further clarification on the FIAP monochrome definition with the following:
A monochromatic color scheme uses the grayscale as the primary hue (colour) with a range of black shades (darker) and tints (lighter) of the grayscale.
A ‘duo-toned’ image is not considered a monochromatic colour scheme because it consists of two or more hues which are not consistent with the primary hue.
