This contest is for your photos of auroras, also known as the polar lights. Images can show either the southern lights (aurora australis) or northern lights (aurora borealis). The main subject of the image should be the aurora, but people, mountains, animals, buildings etc. can also appear in the photo.
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.
