This contest is about advertising hoardings displaying advertising posters and the immediate environment of those hoardings. That environment may be urban or rural but the point here is that an advertiser has deliberately chosen and paid for a hoarding in a specific location to advertise their product or event. The hoarding may appear alongside street art - as in my banner - but that may simply be a fortunate and accidental part of the hoarding's environment. The focus of your image should be a printed advertising hoarding (not digital or neon) and its professionally produced artwork, but the context should also be shown and any images that show nothing but the hoardng will not be judged. This contest really is all about shot selection ... so no composites please, as we already see too many of them.
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.
