The power of our seas has crafted some of earth’s most spectacular scenery. It includes vast beaches, soaring cliffs, tiny alcoves, expansive natural harbours, and everything in-between. In some areas our coasts are unspoilt and quiet, in others we have added lighthouses and houses, or created bustling towns and cities and often quite gaudy tourist resorts. It’s a relaxed brief for this contest that can cover anything from purely natural landscapes to coastal cityscapes.
This Premium Contest is worth 1.5x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged AND crowd-rated, with your score from each combined. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.
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.
