Birds in Flight

In association with Photocrowd

Open Rating Results

Birds doing what (most) birds do best - taking to the skies. Challenging the skills of any bird photographer, capturing a bird on the wing takes patience, skill, knowledge of bird behaviour, and a helping hand from some nice pieces of camera kit. We’re looking forward to seeing stunning pictures of every kind of bird in flight.

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.
