Open Rating Results

We’re applying the black and white treatment to sports photography, and seeing how it brings a different look and feel to a genre that we usually only see in full colour news publications and websites. Any sport is fair game (pun intended) and if adding a subtle colour tone such as sepia or blue to your black and white image is your preference, these are also fine to be included.

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.
