Open to photographers with a gold or silver ranking. There are two other 'Close-ups' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
By simply moving in closer on a subject, it's possible to discover a whole new level of detail and texture that might just have been a blur of colour from a distance. A close up, or even a macro, shot of even the most mundane objects can show it in new, creative and surprising ways. This is a brief that can be open to interpretation.
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.
