First place and grand prize, Things category.

What's black-and-white and read all over? Boise Weekly's annual Black-and-White Photo Contest, now celebrating its 14th year.

With some changes to the process this year, as we moved submissions and voting online, we pulled in a record 323 photos lovingly shot by their creators and carefully vetted not only by readers but a panel of expert judges including local photographers Patrick Sweeney and Laurie Pearman alongside Boise Weekly Art Director Kelsey Hawes.

The sheer number of entries guaranteed a wide variety of subject matter and style, from the concrete to the emphemeral, sometimes bordering on impressionistic. One thing was clear, however: BW shutterbugs have a knack for capturing the subtle beauty afforded by the medium. Thank you to all those who submitted work—it was a pleasure to see so many talented pieces in one place.
