Please enter your best photographs of a fire escape attached to a building. Designed for its functionality, the external iron stairway is considered a source of beauty by some and an eyesore by others. Although an iron stairway is the most common, you may enter photos of any type of fire escape attached to a building including chain or rope ladders, a chute (similar to the slides used to escape airplanes) or an enclosed fire and smoke-proof stairway. Please do not enter photos of ladders or other devices that are not attached to a building.
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.
