This contest is for your photos of insects and other arthropods with stingers. Stingers are sharp organs, usually located at the rear of some arthropods such as wasps, fire ants and scorpions. Please only enter photos of arthropods with stingers and not other animals with organs that perform similar functions like the tentacles of jellyfish or the fangs of venomous snakes. Please do not enter photos of arthropods that only bite such as mosquitos, fleas and ticks.
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.
