Juxtaposition happens when there are two or more elements in a scene that either contrast with each other, or one element contributes towards the other to create an overall theme. It’s all about making the viewer wonder why we chose a certain viewpoint for the photo and why we decided it was good enough to share with others. To create a point of juxtaposition, the photo must contain at least two elements with strong visual weight. The viewer looks at both of these at the same time, coming to their own conclusion about the purpose of each element.
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.
