This is a wide subject that can be open to interpretation ranging from objects and portraits to interior or exterior settings. I will be looking for images that bring historical subjects alive using lighting, atmosphere and composition. Historically the subject should give a feeling of anything before 1980 though it does not have to be made to look like a period photograph, so also think of a movie style historical drama feel. Colour, black and white, or toned photos are all acceptable. Avoid photos of just decay and ruins that offer nothing else to the viewer.
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 also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
