This contest is for your close-up photos of patterns found on animals. There is incredible beauty to be admired in these patterns whether stripes, spots, scales or feathers to mention a few. You should be able to identify which animal it is by looking at the pattern, but please do not submit full-length photos of the animal, leaving an element of mystery to the viewer. Please only enter images of living animals.
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.
