Open to photographers with a gold or silver ranking. There are two other 'Abstracts using glass' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
When it comes to materials, glass can be both a blessing and a curse for photographers. In terms of abstract photography, countless unique effects can be achieved with glass. Refraction, reflection and the many ways that glass channels light can all be harnessed to create unique, abstract shots. For this contest, the light-bending properties of glass can be a benefit instead of something to avoid.
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.
