Black and white photography is as simple as it is complex, carefully weaving streaks of light into the black-unknown, giving rise to lines, shapes, textures, emotions and stories. TZIPAC is proud to celebrate this magic of black and white photography with The Zebra Award 2012 . With US$5000 worth of grand prizes and our custom-made TZIPAC medals up for grabs, we hope The Zebra Award 2012 will bring to light the marvelously diverse and vibrant visions of black and white photography from many amazing artists worldwide.
