The 6th annual BLACK AND WHITE SPIDER AWARDS is the leading international award honoring excellence in black and white photography. I submitted one photograph, titled "Behold" and it was among the thousands of images that were received from 73 countries worldwide. The awards international Jury included captains of the industry from Sotheby's, Magnum Photos, The Armory Show, Fratelli Alinari to Tate and Phillips de Pury & Company in London who honored Spider Fellows with 190 coveted title awards in 27 categories.
The judges reviewed the entries online for eight weeks before making their final nominations and Keith Berr's “Behold” an exceptional image entered in the Nature category, received a high percentage of votes overall.
"The Spider Awards celebrates photographers who operate at the highest levels of their craft," said Basil O'Brien, the awards Creative Director. "Keith Berr 's work represents black and white photography at its finest, and we're pleased to present him with the Honorable Mention." You can view the 6th Annual Winners Gallery at The Spider Awards Website and enjoy some amazing photography that I am very proud to be a part of.
