Open to gold and silver-ranked photographers only. There are two other 'Family portraits' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
One of the first popular uses of the camera was in photographing people and their families. The expense and difficulty of these images meant that these snapshots were often treasured possessions – a moment of familial togetherness passed down through the generations. Shooting family portraits is just as popular today, and requires many of the same skills. Working with a large group of people can be challenging, so it's important to be patient and assertive enough to compose everyone in the right way. The results will speak for themselves.
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.
