Open to photographers with a gold or silver ranking. There are two other 'Macro plants' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
One of the most enduringly popular subjects for macro photographers is plantlife. Not only does the intricacy of nature lend itself perfectly to these ultra close-up shots, but plants are abundant and can be found anywhere, at any time of the year. Even if the weather's cold where you are, why not buy a flower or a plant and bring the photography indoors? This might give you the opportunity to get a little more creative with your background, too. Good luck!
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.
