As social creatures, our eyes almost always fall on the face in a portrait shot, to look for emotions, expressions, stories. But what we often forget is the importance of context and body language which can sometimes be just as evocative. Faceless portraits are so interesting because they leave room for interpretation and encourage the viewer to look for longer. Try it out for yourself.
We have $100 USD of Rocky Nook store credit to giveaway to our two winners!
The expert judge's winner and the crowd's winner will both receive $50 store credit at Rocky Nook - one of the world's leading book publishers specialising in photography.
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.
