Looking Up In Towns and Cities

In association with Photocrowd

Open Rating Results

If you’ve ever been on a walking tour of a city, then you may have got out of the habit of never looking up when treading the pavements. There are rewards aplenty when you look above the storefronts and front doors, and marvel at the architecture that lives there. Usually less tampered with over the years, more authentic, and in cities rewarded with views of taller buildings too. As well as buildings, there are urban trees, construction cranes, monuments, and more. Go exploring and see what you can find.

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.
