Open to photographers with a gold or silver ranking. There are two other 'Intentionally blurred' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
There are a thousand photography magazines and websites who advocate image sharpness and how to achieve it through technique and equipment, but sometimes intentional blur is the magic ingredient to take your shot from good to great. The perfect technique to kickstart your creativity – blurring your photos is a chance to explore colour, pattern and texture, and forget about all the little details of composition. Have fun with this one, and good luck.
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.
