Hokkaido is Japan's most northern island and seems so far removed culturally, architecturally, and geographically from what most people view as "Japan". I would like to see your photos of the wildness that is Hokkaido. Photos outside of Hokkaido are not allowed in this contest and as a resident of Hokkaido, I will know if photos are entered showing other parts of Japan or elsewhere in the world. Japanese snow monkeys are not from Hokkaido and images showing snow monkeys will be disqualified from my judging if entered.
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.
