Open Rating Results

Have you ever wondered why leaves turn yellow, orange and brown in the autumn? Here’s an explainer from the brains over at Kew Gardens in London. So as we say goodbye to the chlorophyll, and hello to the flavonols, carotenoids and anthocyanins, it’s as good a reason as you’ll find each year to pull on a hat, buy yourself some fingerless gloves, and get out shooting in the natural world.

This Premium Contest is worth 1.5x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged AND crowd-rated, with your score from each combined. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.

How it works

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.
