mono images in club competitions

The following is taken from the Federation of South London Photographic Societies Handbook, Section 5.b. This applies to Mono print and Mono DPI competitions.

The term “monochrome print” describes a print produced in varying densities of a single hue. Conventionally that hue would be a neutral grey, with densities from white to black. However, the neutral grey could be replaced by any single hue.

Examples of acceptable and unacceptable prints:

A “black and white” print, uniformly printed or toned with one tone or hue, would be acceptable as a monochrome print. It would not be acceptable as a colour print in the colour print competition.

A “black and white” print, partially toned with a single hue in addition to the base hue, is not acceptable as “monochrome”, and is regarded as a “colour” print.

A print wholly or partially toned with two or more hues is a colour print.

A monochrome print which has had another hue added to one element is a colour print, and is not acceptable in a monochrome competition. (e.g. coloured lips on an otherwise black and white portrait).
