Sometimes, the most colourful kind of photography is black and white. This is especially true for animal photography where the exclusion of colour strips the image down and creates a tangible atmosphere. Remember to use light and tones, creatively, to really draw out the subject. A well-structured black and white photo conveys nuance and meaning more effectively than colour.
The expert and crowd winners will win a year-long Photocrowd subscription.
The expert judge's winner and the crowd's favourite will both win a year-long Photocrowd Challenger subscription, worth £30. Our plans give you more ways to enjoy Photocrowd, including more entries into contests and reduced entry fees into a range of top photo awards.
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.
