Libraries and Studies

In association with Photocrowd

Open Rating Results

We have created public libraries, and private studies, as places where we can have the quiet needed to focus on our reading, our studying, and our work. These refuges of calm give our minds the chance to settle and make progress on the tasks at hand. Libraries range from the wood-panelled and mediaeval to modernist, well-lit masterpieces. Studies may well be enjoying a renaissance, with the shift towards homeworking, and will be more of a reflection of the owner. We’re looking forward to seeing how you’ve documented these spaces, and hope that you didn’t make too much noise when you were shooting. Shhhhhh!

This Premium Contest is worth 1.5x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged AND crowd-rated, with your score from each combined. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.

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.
