Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Food and drink' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
The idea that you need super flashy equipment to take good photos of food and drink is a myth... all you really need is whatever you’ve got, because it’s how you apply it that counts. Try to get your composition in place in advance so that you can concentrate on the food when it's ready to photograph. You don’t want to be worrying about the smaller details when the dish (or drink) is laid out and ready to be photographed!
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.
