In abstract photography, colours become less about giving information (such as the context of the photo, or the environment) and feature more as a 2D element to be enjoyed. Abstracts are separated from meaning, with no immediate association to the outside world. Their purpose, then, is different, and photographers are free to get far more creative – approaching their subjects more like an artist than a straightforward documenter of reality. This is a fun brief to get you thinking! Enjoy.
The crowd's favourite will win a year-long Photocrowd subscription.
The crowd's favourite will win a year-long Photocrowd Challenger subscription, worth £30. Our plans give you more ways to enjoy Photocrowd, including more entries into contests and reduced entry fees into a range of top photo awards.
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.
