Documentary photography and photojournalistic photos show images capturing the world or everyday life as it exists, without stage managing or directing. Nothing should be removed from the original scene and editing should be kept to a minimum like cropping, contrast, highlights adjustments and of course black and white conversion. The photo must be in black and white with no coloured parts. For my judging I will appreciate new photos, not those I have seen multiple times before.
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.
