Possibly no other group of animals exhibits a larger range of colors than the birds. From dull and drab to gaudy and flamboyant, the spectrum is vast. Examples are to be found on every continent and in myriad habitats, with the tropics first on the list.
This contest focuses on wild birds showing off strikingly colorful plumages in wild settings from anywhere in the world. Strive for images with sharp focus (at least at the eyes) and non-distracting backgrounds.
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.
