Open Rating Results

In this Nikon-only contest – brought to you by N-Photo magazine – we're asking for images lit by flash and studio lighting. Whether you've shot outdoors using a blip of flash to bring out your subject or in a studio with artificial lights your only light source, we want to see your mastery of lighting!

Don't forget, all entries MUST be taken with a NIKON camera, and you must also include a title and shooting information (camera, lens and exposure info), either in the info section or in the image's own exif data. Images without shooting information will not be considered. Please also ensure that images are submitted at full resolution suitable for print – low-resolution images will be disqualified!

Both the expert's first choice and winner of the crowd vote will each win a £100 voucher from online photo lab Cewe. There is also a Nikon D850 camera (worth £3,500 GBP) up for grabs later in 2018!

Prize details

This contest is part of a year-long series of 12 photo competitions from N-Photo magazine, that will run throughout 2018. The top-rated entries to all competitions will be then be judged at the end of the year, and the overall winner will be crowned N-Photo's 'Nikon Photographer of the Year' – and take home Nikon's groundbreaking D850 camera, worth £3500!

For the 'Flash and studio lights' contest, both the expert's first choice and winner of the crowd vote will each win a £100 voucher from online photo lab Cewe to have their image professionally mounted. The style is up to you, from acrylic to aluminium, stretched on canvas or mounted in a traditional wooden frame, Cewe Photoworld offers a vast range of wall art and a huge array of size options. Or you might prefer to have a gallery of your images made into a calendar or printed into a photo book – you can spend your £100 voucher however you wish!

The judge's top 10 and the winner of the crowd vote will have their images printed in an upcoming issue of N-Photo, the UK's most popular photography magazine for Nikon users.

*Please keep in mind that images will be printed WITHOUT watermarks.

How it works

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.
