Insect photography requires patience and an eye for detail. There are several tools of the trade (such as macro lenses, reflectors and tripods) that can make your life a whole lot easier when capturing these little critters, but the most important thing is perseverance and a sense of curiosity at the world around you. We look forward to seeing what you come up with.

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.
