Family means different things to different people, but underlying all the celebrations, and the arguments, and the love, and laughter and intense annoyances, is a bond that was forged long ago, and which endures in some form or other, no matter what. We’ll keep this contest focussed on families of the human kind, and don’t feel constrained by blood relations - we form families of a kind in many other areas of our life too.
Our Premium Contests are judged by some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best submitted imagery, and provide valuable feedback that explains their choices, and helps you improve. Judges are confirmed towards the end of a contest. Premium Contests also carry more ranking points, so if you’ve got your eyes set on climbing the leaderboard, they’re a great way to achieve that.
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.
