Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Monochrome' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
In monochrome photos, there are no colours to brighten or set certain areas apart; shades of grey must be used to distinguish elements. However, without colour, qualities like shadow, light, pattern and texture are accentuated and imbued with even more emotion than their colourful counterparts, and the scene can be far more visually impactful.
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.
