The humble brick, used in construction for almost 10,000 years and counting, apparently, and still the go-to, stalwart material of much of the world’s building industry, despite its many modern-day challengers. You might take a photowalk around your local brick-built housing estate. You might visit the majestic Tate Modern museum in London, the repurposed and renovated brick-built Victorian power station. If you want to send the Photocrowd offices into a state of confusion then upload a picture of a brick, and we can get to thinking about whether it is made of bricks or not.
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.
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.
