This contest is for your photos of bears in their natural habitat. Images can show any type of bear such as brown, black, honey, panda or any other variety, but no soft toy or model bears or caged zoo animals. The bears should be depicted in their natural environment. Colour and black and white images are allowed, captured in any season.
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.
