Open Rating Results

Calling all those likely to be found at airshows, by airport fences, or on the sides of steep Welsh valleys. We want to see your best images of machines that fly, be they airplanes, gliders, helicopters, or hot air balloons. They can be on the ground or in the sky, a scale model or a full sized beast.

This Premium Contest is worth 1.5x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged AND crowd-rated, with your score from each combined. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.

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 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.
