Please submit your photos of anything related to handwriting. Writing is the process of using symbols (letters of the alphabet, punctuation and spaces) to communicate thoughts and ideas in a readable form. Examples could be pens, pencils, letters, cards, pages from diaries, calligraphy, signs and notices. All images must relate to the hand, so that means no printed matter such as newspapers, books, road signs, shop signs etc., unless written by hand. People may be included if someone is holding or using a writing implement. Photos can be in colour or black and white. I have excluded images of graffiti because this type of handwriting is frequently featured in other contests.
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.
