This contests invites your best shots of birds living on bodies of fresh water such as rivers, lakes or ponds, but not the sea or oceans. Entries can be a single bird or several birds, either on the water itself or flying low over it. Both the bird and the fresh water should be visible in the shot.
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.
