Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Animals at speed' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Photographing a moving animal can be a tricky prospect. Not only is there the problem of getting anywhere near the animal in the first place, but you'll also have to contend with technical challenges such as focus tracking, motion blur and a lack of sharpness. But for those who succeed, the reward is being able to witness animals in their most impressive states. Stay alert and check your camera's settings beforehand - good luck!
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.
