Like humans, animals can often project happiness, perhaps through expressions or by their actions. Please enter your photographs of live animals suggesting happiness. Entries may be in colour or black and white. Close attention to composition, lighting and focus is favourable. Please only enter photos of living animals, and please no photographs of people.
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.
