This contest is open to photographers ranked below 1000 in this week’s Leaderboard.
It’s all about ‘shaped head coverings’ (Oxford English Dictionary) in this week’s ranked contests, otherwise known as hats. Maybe you’ve captured the exotic creations of a milliner, snapped a policeman in his helmet, or been looking for hankie hats on the beach for your homage to Martin Parr.
Ranked Contests are a weekly chance to compete alongside photographers of a similar Leaderboard ranking. Three contests with the same theme run at one time - for photographers ranked 1-250; 251-1000; and 1001+. They open Saturday morning after that week’s leaderboard has been updated, and are open for 5 days. They are Premium Contests, Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote, so are worth 3x the standard ranking points.
This contest is expert judged only with no rating by the crowd. You will be able to find out how you did when the judging or rating period has closed.
