The Black & White Photo Project closed for entries on March 30, 2020 and has seen winning photographs from Australia, Austria, England, Germany, Iceland, New Zealand, Scotland, United States and Wales.
The winner of this year's Black & White Photo Project is Anne MacIntyre with the work entitled 'Ethereal Cosmos'.
Anne said: "After having recently painted my summerhouse white, I decided to capture these delicate Cosmos flowers creating vivid white tones of this black and white composition."
Judges said: "It is easy to turn any colour photograph into black and white, but through clear intent Anne chose the setup before photographing to dramatic effect; both the black and the whites are punchy and incredibly detailed."
"This work uses black and white to add something special, not take something away."
Anne will receive £500, be published in the new IGPOTY 14 book and will feature at the flagship exhibition at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in 2021 (should both go ahead post pandemic).
