Open to gold and silver-ranked photographers only. There are two other 'Blossom' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Spring is here, and so is cherry blossom season - A beautiful yet brief highlight of the botanical year. 'Sakura', as it's known in Japan, is one of the most impressive sights in the world, and millions of tourists each year flock to see the wind-blown cascades of petals that cover the pavements in a haze of pink and white. There are many varieties of 'Blossom', and we'd like you to have a go at photographing them. Good luck!
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.
