Have you ever clicked your camera by mistake and thought 'mmm that photo looks interesting'. Maybe you've accidentally shot a photo with the wrong camera setting and liked the effect. Or inadvertently captured an abstract photo as you were walking not realising you'd pressed the shutter release. Usually a term applied to sections of oil and watercolour artist's paintings we want to see your photographic 'happy accidents' no matter what the subject.
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.
