Open Rating Results
Brief

Portraits are one of photography’s most accessible endeavours, as we all have a wealth of subjects around us. We want to see your very best close-up portraits.

Expert and Crowd winners will receive a licence to Affinity Photo professional editing software. The top 3 in the expert-judged category, and the crowd-vote winner will also be published in a future issue of Digital Photographer magazine.

Prize details

Win a licence to Affinity Photo professional editing software. Award-winning Affinity Photo continues to push the boundaries for professional photo editing software. Available for a one-off £48.99 on Mac or Windows, and £19.99 for iPad, its huge toolset is engineered for modern photography professionals. Whether you’re editing and retouching images or creating full-blown multi-layered compositions, it has all the power and performance you’ll ever need.

Speed, power and accuracy are at the heart of Affinity Photo’s workflow, with non-destructive editing, RAW processing and end-to-end colour management as standard. Edits work in real time, so there’s no waiting to see results.

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.
