Some of the most underrated graffiti on show are the name tags written on manmade surfaces. These are the hand-painted names that are too readily dismissed as mindless scribbles. Despite their bad reputation not all taggers can be tarred with the same brush. The free-flowing swirls of spray paint can be extremely creative especially in the hands of experienced street artists who exhibit their work on specially designated sites. Your photographic challenge is to capture graffiti tags in such a way as to do justice to the art of these self-professed noms de plume.
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.
