I would love to see your photographs of any subject or scene utilising the technique of intentional camera movement (ICM). The ICM should be produced in-camera rather than through adding effects in post-processing. This technique is produced by movement of the camera during the open shutter, producing effects such as a dreamy streaking effect, and can make for some very unusual and unique pieces. Ideally it should still be clear what the photograph is of. Colour photos or black and white are permitted.

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.
