Please enter your photos of food against a dark background. Your images should call to mind the paintings of the Old Masters, such as Vermeer and Rembrandt, where the interplay of light and shadow guide the viewer's eye to a specific area in the frame to create a dramatic mood. The background should be dark or in shadow, and the food should be in the light.
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.
