Let's hear it for the ferrets, the stick insects, the gerbils and the poison dart frogs! Why do the cats and dogs always get the press? There's a wonderful world of other pets out there, lounging under their heatlamps, wrapped around their branches and exploring their terraria. To keep it simple, any image submitted must be of a pet animal, not a farmed animal, and no cats or dogs.
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.
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.
