For this contest I am looking for your photos of insects in their natural habitat at any stage of their life cycle. This can include photos of adult insects, caterpillars, larvae etc. Please note: spiders are not insects. This theme lends itself to macro or closeups, but that is not essential. All photos must be in colour, and please only show live insects. Photos will be judged on clarity, composition, and general visual appeal. I am looking forward to seeing what you can find.
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.
