Staged photography with friends can sometimes feel stilted and awkward. Subjects that are more relaxed or who are captured spontaneously will be more likely to reveal their natural chemistry in front of the lens. If there’s a palpable connection between the subjects, there’s no such thing as a ‘bad’ photograph!
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.
