Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Hobbies' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Our hobbies play a large part in our personal identities and the tribes we affiliate ourselves with. Capturing a person surrounded by the paraphernalia of their hobby is a more authentic and meaningful portrait than simply a shot of their face. In this way, hobbies can be used to contextualise an image and add a unique sense of character to 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.
