Not always thought of as beautiful, but certainly interesting and worthy of a photographer’s attention, industrial buildings vary greatly in their aesthetic, age, size, function and ease of access. Some older industrial buildings are considered valuable heritage architecture, and are being treated as such, whilst many others have become derelict. But most are still functioning industrial units, and so shooting from an accessible vantage point, or requesting permission to shoot on-site will be required. We’re restricting ourselves to the exteriors of industrial buildings in this contest, and an exploration of your local town or city should throw up many opportunities to shoot new work.
This Premium Contest is worth 1.5x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged AND crowd-rated, with your score from each combined. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.
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.
