These are interiors of commercial buildings - offices, banks, retail premises, shopping malls, hotels, hospitals, public buildings and any other kind of non-residential building. They have to combine the required functionality of that building with a style that matches the usage and possibly the brand that occupies or owns the building. Shooting commercial interiors will usually require permission from the owner, but this is not often withheld, although the use of tripods when the public are around can occasionally be considered a health and safety issue.
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.
