As photographers, we walk around with our eyes wide open and receptive, but often there is a 'hidden' image', that little face that you see in brickwork, or in bushes, or an a building. That's what we're looking for in this contest; it's called "Apophenia" and is the human tendency to perceive meaningful patterns within random data. Submit your images for us all to smile at but, please, try not to enter shots of clouds, these images should be there for all to see at any time., and definitely no Photoshopped or rigged pictures. Be aware and enjoy it.
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.
