This contest is for your photos of wildlife living in or around ponds and lakes. Images could include birds such as swans or coots or other creatures living in the water such as terrapins. Any animal can be included so long as it was photographed in or around a lake or pond. Photos can be in black and white or colour.
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.
