Which is the best way to turn photos into black and white like this?

I don't know how it's called in English, but sometimes some people refer to it in Brazilian Portuguese as "alto contraste", which can be translated as "high contrast". But I've searched and found it seems not to be accurate.

I made this using Corel DRAW following a tutorial I found long ago, but I lost the link to it and can't remember all the steps. I can remember it started by converting to grayscale then launching PHOTO-PAINT via a command from DRAW to complete the work.

So I ask you to please help me find the best (and easiest) way to make that effect directly in Corel PHOTO-PAINT. TIA.
