Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Lakes and reservoirs' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
For places that are so naturally beautiful, it can be a challenge to photograph lakes and reservoirs. The reflectiveness and unpredictability of water is something you’ll need to manage if you want to take a great shot. And remember, lakes are sanctuaries for wildlife, which means there’ll be plenty of opportunity to add extra interest to your scene.
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.
