In this contest I would like to see your photos of the aurora borealis and the aurora australis. These astronomical phenomena are also known as the northern lights and the southern lights, or polar lights. Please do not enter any composite images, and in the interests of fairness to other photographers please ensure you stick to the brief. I hope you enjoy the contest.
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.
