I would like to see your photos showing the concept of juxtaposition. Juxtaposition is when you place two subjects side by side in such a way that the comparison or the contrast between them creates an interesting image. A great example of this is the portrait taken by Annie Leibovitz of horse racing jockey Willie Shoemaker (4'11" tall) and NBA basketball legend Wilt Chamberlain (7' 1"). Placed side by side creates interest because we are not accustomed to see such a contrast. Other examples are young and old or rich and poor; the more interesting the better. Images can be in colour or black and white. I hope you have fun with the contest.

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.
