Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Black and white portraits' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Portrait photography is an area where black and white really comes into its own. Unneeded distractions are stripped away and expressions are emphasised. Black and white isn't an old-fashioned limitation - but a creative choice. Use it wisely.
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.
