If you find that you know your local area in and out, and have explored every corner with your lens, there's an exciting way to see your town with new eyes – go nocturnal. The 'golden hours' of twilight are celebrated by photographers, but what about after that? What happens to the busy, bustling streets when the sun goes down? Have a go at heading out with your camera at dusk, instead of heading home.
Prizes include full day and half day courses at DSLR Photography Courses, as well as books by Michael Freeman.
The expert judge's chosen winner will be offered a full-day course (value £125) at DSLR Photography Courses. The winner of the crowd-vote will be offered a half day course (value £75).
In addition to the courses, the judges winner will receive a copy of The Photographer's Eye Remastered 10th Anniversary: Composition and Design for Better Digital Photographs by Michael Freeman.
The crowd's winner will receive a copy of Michael Freeman's The Low Light Photography Field Guide.
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.
