The rule of thirds is one of the best known rules of photographic composition, that is often thought to be one of the best ways to achieve interesting and balanced shots. For this contest I want to see your best photographs that go against this 'rule' and show a different type of composition. Photos may be of any subject and be in colour or black and white. I look forward to seeing your photos.

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.
