This contest is about breaking the rules of image composition. Photographers often think about where to position the subject, and most of us have learned “the rule of thirds” relating to composition of a photo. This contest is your chance to enter an image where you have placed the subject so far off centre that it is mostly outside the edge of the photo. This engages the viewer by forcing them to be more active in constructing a story beyond the photo itself. The subject of your image must be people and/or animals only. I hope you have fun experimenting by being creative and breaking the rules of composition.
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.
