It takes a little effort and intention to crane back our heads and look up, but there’s a lot to see! It might be the towering presence of high rise architecture, the dizzying canopy of a forest, or the decorated view of a beautiful ceiling. Photocrowd contests should be as much about being inspired to shoot new work as about trawling the archive, so see what you can find when you point your cameras heaven-ward over the next few weeks.
Our Premium Contests are judged by some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best submitted imagery, and provide valuable feedback that explains their choices, and helps you improve. Judges are confirmed towards the end of a contest. Premium Contests also carry more ranking points, so if you’ve got your eyes set on climbing the leaderboard, they’re a great way to achieve that.
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.
