Mechanisms are an assembly of moving parts working together in a machine to perform a particular function. I would like you to capture an interesting photo of a cunning apparatus or elegant device showing mechanisms close up. You may be surprised how many examples surround you in your daily routine, often overlooked yet relied upon for some useful purpose. I am looking forward to levers or cogs, spindles or springs, with a focus on the parts rather than a complete machine. I hope that inspires you and that you enjoy taking part.

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.
