For this contest, I would like to see your best photos of animals that many people deem to be ugly, scary or hated, as opposed to those which people love. These can include creatures such as snakes, spiders, sharks, centipedes, rats, wasps and many other animals deemed a monster or a menace by the general public. Try to capture them in a way that shows that there is more to them than meets the eye and that they are just as deserving of respect as the creatures so many of us love.
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.
