Open to photographers with a gold or silver ranking. There are two other 'Environmental portraits' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
In this portraiture contest we'd like to see a portrait shot that takes the setting into consideration as much as the sitter, because a lot of the time, an environment has as much character as the person in it, and tells us something about who they are. Have a go at photographing someone in their 'natural' environment. For example, a teacher in a classroom or a shopkeeper in their shop.
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.
