Many industrial landscapes are derelict or fast disappearing. Smoke stacks are toppled, pit heads are gone, gasometers scrapped and steelworks fall silent. We have a chance to record this industrial heritage while it still forms part of our landscape. For this contest, landscapes of industrial dereliction are fine but there is also a living industrial landscape out there.

This is a landscape of container ports, cargo ports and docks, manufacturing plants, power stations, refineries and chemical plants, rail goods yards, wind farms, drilling platforms. Grimy or shiny, they can all be industrial landscapes.

What is or is not ‘industrial’ can also be about the way you photograph the scene but, for the record, cityscapes of tower and office blocks are not industrial. Equally, images of machinery or people at work are not landscapes. Nor are pets - even if they are working dogs.

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.
