Breaking the Rule of Thirds

Open Rating Results

The Rule of Thirds is one of the best-known rules of photographic composition. Budding photographers are often told that this is one of the surest ways to achieve interesting and balanced shots. However, Photocrowd's Mike Betts explains why this doesn't always need to be the case in his popular blog post. Have a read and try something a little different for this technical challenge.

Winners and highly commended finishers will gain LumeJet prizes worth £30, as well as exposure across Photocrowd.

Prize details

Crowd-voting only: The winner will receive a LumeJet voucher worth over £30 - earning you either a high-quality 1m print or equivalent value products! The winner and high-placed finishers will also gain exposure on Photocrowd’s ‘Best photos’ page and could make it onto our social media channels!

LumeJet voucher may be used against any online order and international shipping in a single transaction at lumejet.com within 28 days.

How it works

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.

Some contests on Photocrowd are also judged by an expert. After the submission period closes the expert judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and expert results will be announced on the same day.
