In most types of photography, such as landscape, portrait or sport, you want to get the context of your scene into the image. With macro, however, you’re free to remove all distractions and get as close as possible to the bare elements of whatever you choose to capture. You can do it anywhere, anytime and with anything – all you need is an appropriate lens.
The crowd's favourite will win a year-long Photocrowd subscription.
The crowd's favourite will win a year-long Photocrowd Challenger subscription, worth £30. Our plans give you more ways to enjoy Photocrowd, including more entries into contests and reduced entry fees into a range of top photo awards.
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.
