A fossil is any preserved remains, impression, or trace of any once-living thing from a past geological age. Examples include bones, shells, exoskeletons, stone imprints of animals or microbes.

There's something magical about seeing something so mindbogglingly old, so please share photos of your fossils whether big or small, polished or fresh out the ground.

Things not to include - generic photos of shells, rocks, modern skeletons/bones/skulls, or anything by the brand Fossil (bags, watches).

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.
