Cafés have their very own identity and culture. This contest is about café culture. The design, the environment, the style of cafés and, if you choose, the interactions of the people in cafés. It really is that straightforward ... except ... and this is the crunch point of the brief: please note that this contest is about cafés. It is not about pubs. They are different. This contest is also not an invitation to submit portraits that may have been taken in a café. The brief also exludes close up shots of coffee, drinks, food, beer taps, coffee machines etc.. Otherwise, this contest is simply about the environment - including the people - that make up café culture. Enjoy!
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.
