In this contest I would like to see your photos showing only the head of a bird. Photos should show just the head, and no images of birds of prey are to be entered. A large lens is not always essential as there are many fairly tame birds in parks etc that will let you get close enough to fill the frame with their heads, such as swans, gulls, and sparrows. Portrait images of birds can also be easier to achieve visiting a bird hide or using a pop-up hide.
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.
