Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) as the title suggests, is a technique in which the photographer moves the camera in one direction or another whilst the shutter is open. The is used for creative and artistic effect. It can be used in any genre of photography, but is particular popular when capturing landscape images. e.g: The image in the above challenge banner was taken by selecting a shutter speed of 1/8th sec. and panning the camera upwards whilst the shutter was open.

For this challenge there's no restriction of subject matter, as long as Intentional Camera Movement technique is employed to creative effect to capture the image.

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.
