In 1968, Tony Duffy, a British accountant and amateur photographer, travelled to Mexico City for the Olympic Games. The incredible shot of American long jumper Bob Beamon he captured there launched Duffy’s career as a sports photographer, and his imagery of athletes has become iconic. For this challenge, we’re asking for photos that echo Duffy’s work. Get inspired by the Olympic and Paralympic fever – while entries don’t have to be taken at the Olympic Games, they should capture the drama and humanity of sport at its best.

The winners of the crowd vote and the expert's category will both receive copies of Reuters - Sports in the 21st Century and TIME-LIFE The Olympics: Moments That Made History. The highest placed images will be featured on Photocrowd's 'Best images' page and social media channels.
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.
