I would like to see your beach photos before you start editing. You can include anything you like as long as you don't edit the picture otherwise you will be disqualified. Sunrise and sunset photos would be ok. Try to be creative and remember no editing please!
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.
For a more detailed explanation of how rating works, see our FAQs
