W. Eugene Smith ( is regarded as one of the most talented photo journalists who set the standard for the photo-essay. In his words: “My station in life is to capture the action of life, the life of the world, its humour, its tragedies, in other words, life as it is. A true picture, unposed and real”. In this contest let us see your images that tell a story about the subject in a natural unposed style.

How it works

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.
