I want to see your best photos of ocean birds on the sea or in the air above the sea, not on land or rocks. These birds spend most of their lives at sea, returning to land only to breed. Examples of such birds include albatrosses, gannets, members of the auk family, petrels, fulmars and shearwaters.
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
