This contest is open to photographers ranked between 1 and 250 in this week’s Leaderboard.
Fireworks can make for amazing photography, and are a great way to use shutter speed creatively. Done well, images of fireworks convey the excitement and wonder of the fireworks display, whether it’s a small box that you let off in your own backyard, or a huge public display that takes your breath away.
Ranked Contests are a weekly chance to compete alongside photographers of a similar Leaderboard ranking. Three contests with the same theme run at one time - for photographers ranked 1-250; 251-1000; and 1001+. They open Saturday morning after that week’s leaderboard has been updated, and are open for 5 days. They are Premium Contests, Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote, so are worth 3x the standard ranking points.
This contest is expert judged only with no rating by the crowd. You will be able to find out how you did when the judging or rating period has closed.
