This contest is open to photographers ranked between 1 and 250 in this week’s Leaderboard.
Laughter in photography can be a reward for a great relationship between subject and photographer. Or for more documentary and street style imagery it’s being in the right place when the scene explodes in mirth. Either way, it produces wonderfully unrestrained and appealing imagery, and welcome reminders of the happier side of life.
Ranked Contests are a weekly chance to compete alongside photographers of a similar Leaderboard ranking. Three contests with the same theme run at one time - for photographers ranked 1-250; 251-1000; and 1001+. They open Saturday morning after that week’s leaderboard has been updated, and are open for 5 days. They are Premium Contests, Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote, so are worth 3x the standard ranking points.
This contest is expert judged only with no rating by the crowd. You will be able to find out how you did when the judging or rating period has closed.
