Deserted Places are full of stories of lives, hopes and dreams made and lost. It can invoke images of beauty such as the moon over the Parthenon, industrial and austere such as sunbeams in what remains of a factory, or sobering such as a sunrise reflecting from the frost of a battlefield where lives were lost. Each beautiful in the stories contained within them, some of them forgotten. This contest is about stories told in images of places we abandon and leave behind.
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.
