Open to photographers with a gold or silver ranking. There are two other 'Barren landscapes' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
For every lush, green setting of tangled and uninhibited plant life, there's a barren landscape to match. Arid, infertile, desolate – but just as awe-inspiring and interesting to shoot, these environments are rich with photographic potential. There's no country or climate that doesn't have its own example of a 'barren landscape'. Can you surprise us?
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.
