Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Metal' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Metal ‘things’ – whether objects, vehicles, buildings or something else – are everywhere, but photographing them can be tricky, especially if they’re shiny and reflect their surroundings (including you and your camera!). But don’t be disheartened. There are plenty of techniques you can use to get the most from photographing things that are made out of metal, and plenty of creative approaches you can take.
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.
