Please show me your photographs which you believe best illustrate the concept of austerity. The word austerity is most often used to describe people, places, objects or events which are austere, in other words very plain and simple and lacking unnecessary comfort, detail or decoration. You could for example show me an empty prison cell, hard and angular wooden seating or a person dressed in very severe and simple clothing. Colour, monochrome and composite entries are all permissible. Please be as creative as possible in your interpretation of the brief. I look forward to seeing your austere images.
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.
