Good architecture is the sum of all its parts, and whilst an interesting building will initially impress the visitor with its totality, it is in the studying of the smaller details that the quality of the design and build will be assessed. There is no restriction by age of building in this contest, so everything from gargoyles to zinc cladding can be entered. The architectural details can be on the outside or the inside of the building, but should really be part of the fabric of the building, rather than what one might think of as interior design that has been added after the building was completed.
Our Premium Contests are judged by some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best submitted imagery, and provide valuable feedback that explains their choices, and helps you improve. Judges are confirmed towards the end of a contest. Premium Contests also carry more ranking points, so if you’ve got your eyes set on climbing the leaderboard, they’re a great way to achieve that.
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.
