The theme for this contest is light shows, such as the kind of light shows that are around over the Christmas period or are permanent features in places like Dubai or Singapore amongst others. Examples of light shows are illuminated trees, projections onto buildings, or moving LED and laser displays, possibly accompanied by music. Laser and light shows in a concert hall would also meet the brief. The main idea is that the lights are man-made and are changing. However, photos of Christmas decorations, the Aurora Borealis, traffic trails, sunsets, lightning or firework displays do not fit the brief and will not be judged.
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.
