All submitted images must be in portrait format ie taller than they are wide. Usually when you’re deciding how to frame your landscape shot, the clue’s in the name. Landscape format every time! Not so here, where we’re exploring what can happen when landscapes are shot in portrait format. With their narrower profile there can be more of an emphasis on the layers in the shot, from foreground detail, through mid-ground features, to background horizon and sky. Depth of field can become more critical, as a portrait format often means there is more of the foreground included, and so a greater range of distances in the frame.

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.
