Golden hours

In association with PhotoPlus

Open Rating Results

In this Canon-only contest – brought to you by PhotoPlus magazine – we're asking for your best images that fall under the theme 'Golden hours' – those magical photographic moments shortly after sunrise or before sunset, when the sky appears redder and softer due to the sun's lower position.


Ensure your photo was taken on a Canon camera.

Have EXIF data in your photo (or supply the camera settings in the info section).

Provide a title for your photo.

Write a description of the photo you're entering of at least 50 words to give us the background of what the image is of and how the it was taken. A little context can go a long way!

Check your photo has a resolution of at least 3000 pixels on the longest edge of the photo as we will be printing our top picks in PhotoPlus magazine.


Have a watermark on your photograph.

Supply images taken on camera systems other than Canon.

Submit low-resolution pictures.

The expert's first choice will win a Manfrotto Pro Light RedBee 310 backpack worth £159.95.

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.
