During 2021 we’ll run a series of contests exploring the problems that our environment is facing, and the solutions that are emerging to help us tackle them. Climate change is real, accelerating, and urgent. Humanity’s production of greenhouse gases is warming the world, resulting in increasingly large-scale shifts in weather patterns, and other damaging effects. In this contest we’re focussing on the things that we humans do that emit greenhouse gases, and that we need to stop doing, or do in fundamentally different ways, to slow down and ultimately halt climate change.
Our Premium Contests are judged by some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best submitted imagery, and provide valuable feedback that explains their choices, and helps you improve. Judges are confirmed towards the end of a contest. Premium Contests also carry more ranking points, so if you’ve got your eyes set on climbing the leaderboard, they’re a great way to achieve that.
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.
