This contest is created and judged by a member of the Photocrowd community. Want to run your own? Find out more >

I would like to see your images of light painting. This is a technique where you illuminate your image with light, using items such as torches or burning wire wool, while using a long exposure to photograph your subject in the darkness. Anything can be included in the image, but the light must be the main focus. Be creative and have fun.

How it works

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.
