Open to gold and silver-ranked photographers only. There are two other 'Creative portraits' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Photographers have been shooting portraits for years, but it's the truly creative ones that stick in our minds. The ones that take their subject and breathe life and meaning through an armoury of techniques. There are no 'rules' for a creative portrait (which by effect should make them unexpected and innovative), and you have free range to incorporate any elements you think might make to bring your showpiece to life. Good luck ,and have fun!
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.
