For this contest, I want to see your infrared photos in black and white. The subject can be anything at all but landscape or outdoor subjects tend to work best in infrared. Infrared photography is recording images using a spectrum of light beyond what we can see with our naked eyes. What makes infrared pictures so attractive is the unreal look of bright white foliage, as if covered with snow, combined with a dark sky and ethereal glow around contrasty edges. Entries can either be captured using an infrared camera, or created using an infrared effect in image editing software.

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.
