This contest is open to photographers ranked below 1000 in this week’s Leaderboard.
Crowd scenes of the human kind (which we’re focussing on here) have been more difficult to come across these last two years, so this ranked contest may be a bit of a delve into the archive. There’s something uniquely interesting about us when we get together in large groups - it’s an opportunity for comparisons of look, attitude, expression and dress, and to observe different behaviours, and the arenas in which we congregate.
Ranked Contests are a weekly chance to compete alongside photographers of a similar Leaderboard ranking. Three contests with the same theme run at one time - for photographers ranked 1-250; 251-1000; and 1001+. They open Saturday morning after that week’s leaderboard has been updated, and are open for 5 days. They are Premium Contests, Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote, so are worth 3x the standard ranking points.
This contest is expert judged only with no rating by the crowd. You will be able to find out how you did when the judging or rating period has closed.
