Cleaners all over the world do an amazing job of keeping all our lives tidy, hygienic and in an orderly state. Almost unseen, mostly underpaid, often in very difficult conditions, working the hours most of us would never dream of, all to keep our world running. The cleaners of hospital, offices, schools, refuse collectors, street cleaners, sewerage workers, servants and even mothers all play an amazing and very important role in our lives. Just imagine what would our world be like without their hard work?
What I would like to see are strong portraits or documentary/ reportage images in colour or monochrome that celebrates or highlights the importance of these unsung heroes in our lives.
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.
