Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Black and white abstracts' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
When you take away colour from a photograph, it's black and white; when you take away context, it's abstract. What happens when you take away both? We'd like you to show us! Let us see where your imagination as a photographer takes you when you don't have the elements of environment or colour to fall back on. It's time to get creative.
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.
