In the world of interior design, what is 'modern' is broadly those styles that followed on, and were born out of the modernism movement of the late 19th and early 20th century. Traditional building and design materials such as wood, stone and brick gave way to industrial materials such as glass, steel and concrete, and there was a move away from ornate styles to more practical, minimal styles for the masses. The design styles covered include minimalism, maximalism, industrialism, Scandinavian, mid-century, modern glamour, and rustic modern.
Our Premium Contests are judged by some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best submitted imagery, and provide valuable feedback that explains their choices, and helps you improve. Judges are confirmed towards the end of a contest. Premium Contests also carry more ranking points, so if you’ve got your eyes set on climbing the leaderboard, they’re a great way to achieve that.
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.
