The eyes are often the most compelling part of a photo or portrait, being the area the viewers own eyes will most naturally go to first. They are one (well, two!) of the most expressive parts of the body and are able to convey exactly what the subject is feeling in that moment. They can also direct the viewer to a special point of interest.
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.
