This contest is for your rural landscape photographs which have no sky showing in the image. By moving focus away from a more traditional landscape composition, it allows features of the landscape, such as shapes, forms and patterns to become stronger elements of the shot, as opposed to showing a more straightforward scenic view. Images must be captured in a rural or non-urban setting, and land must dominate the image, although bodies of water may be present. The key point of this contest is that your photos of rural landscapes must not include any sky in the image. Entries can be in colour or black and white. I look forward to your entries.
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.
