This contest was created by a member of the Photocrowd community. Want to create your own? Find out more >

In the contest, I would like to see your photos of the silhouettes of any insects. A silhouette is defined as an outlined view of an object without descriptive interiors, meaning the insect will be a totally black or dark shape against a bright background or light source, giving a more mysterious perspective of the insect. I would prefer to see photos where the silhouette has been captured in-camera, so please try to avoid entering images where a silhouette effect has been created in post-processing. Please make sure you do not confuse silhouettes with shadows and also please do not enter photos of arachnids (spiders and scorpions etc), centipedes, or millipedes as these are not insects.

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.
