UPDATE: Another Contest Scam? Who Runs Monochrome and Monovisions Awards? | PDN Online

Photographers who were asked to judge the Monochrome Awards, a black-and-white photography competition that charges entry fees ranging from $15-$25 tell PDN that they never judged the competition. The stories of these photographers, and the refusal of Monochrome Awards representatives to respond to PDN’s questions about the organization and one of its organizers, Sebastian Markis, suggest there may be a connection between the Monochrome Awards and the International Photographer of the Year awards, another competition that came under scrutiny recently and is suspected of falsely promoting its jurors. Markis is also involved in a third organization, Monovision Magazine, which runs a black-and-white photography competition, PDN has learned.
