The most challenging thing about taking great group portraits is getting everyone on the same page, looking in the right direction and not blinking! With so many different personalities to accommodate, it's important that you prepare in advance. Is your camera set up and ready, so no one has to wait? Have you scoped out an appropriate setting where everyone will fit in and be well lit? Good luck.
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.
