The Mono Awards 2021 – People's Choice winners revealed
The winners of the 3rd annual running of The Mono Awards, presented by SanDisk, were recently announced, and I’m thrilled to bring you the results of voting in the People’s Choice. The people have spoken, voting the images below as their absolute favourites.
Run by Capture and Australian Photography, the competition celebrates the finest black-and-white photography across Australia and New Zealand and is open to photographers from amateur to professional.
Of Django's portrait, Jaydene Chapman says: "Django was full of smiles for his studio sitting, but for just a moment he looked towards my studio light so I could capture his beautiful profile.”
This image also appeared on the cover of the September edition of Australian Photography.
Amber Botterill captured Pout, a portrait of her son, during Melbourne's fourth lockdown. "It was Friday afternoon and after another week of homeschooling and some rubbish weather we were all pretty grumpy. There was some nice light coming into one of my favourite spots in the house and I grabbed the little guy to test it out. He didn't need to pose or change his expression – in that moment his face and the stunning light said it all. It was perfect!"
Ian Nord's winning image was captured at an ocean pool in Newcastle. Nord describes the people captured in the image as "daredevils" as they faced the huge waves crashing into Canoe Pool.
