All the fun of the fair ... Let it rip! This is loud and shouty colour time, snatched candid shots, long exposure carousel rides, fairground art and unwanted lights in your camera face. Please please give me candy floss {or cotton candy if you must} and hot dogs after churning fairground rides ... There are no boundaries. It's all about the fun of the Fair ... but then, of course it's never as easy as click click click ... so here's the simple test of this technically challenging contest: Please think about about it before you throw a random photo in. How do you portray the energy, the colour, the people or even the gritty sleaze of fairgrounds? How do you portray its irresistible draw? ... I have no preconceived ideas about how this might turn out. Surprise me ...

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.
