There is boundless joy to be had creating and evolving a garden, and growing produce for the kitchen. These spaces are valuable for leisure, escape and wellbeing, and never more so than in recent times when we’ve been spending so much more time at home than usual. Capturing the beauty and variety of domestic garden spaces, and the ways in which they are enjoyed, brings even more joy. As with so many subjects in the natural world, the artistic possibilities within even small areas are many. All images of home gardens and allotments are welcomed.
Our Premium Contests are judged by some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best submitted imagery, and provide valuable feedback that explains their choices, and helps you improve. Judges are confirmed towards the end of a contest. Premium Contests also carry more ranking points, so if you’ve got your eyes set on climbing the leaderboard, they’re a great way to achieve that.
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.
