Open to photographers with a bronze ranking. There are two other 'Animals!' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Of all things, animals, birds and insects are some of the most satisfying and difficult to photograph. They rarely do what you want them to do and are often in pretty inaccessible places: in a cage, up a tree, in water. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t hone your photography skills by tracking down these sometimes elusive but always fascinating creatures.
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.
