Panning

In association with Photocrowd

Open Rating Results
Brief

This contest is open to subscribers (members on the Challenger, Pro and Master subscription tiers). However if you're not a paying subscriber you can still purchase entries for £2 (GBP) per image.

Panning is a photographic technique that combines a slow shutter speed with camera motion to create a sense of speed around a moving object. The contrast of the in-focus subject with the blurred background gives a unique aesthetic that can be hard to master. Panning shots can be horizontal, such as a moving car, or even vertical, like a child jumping up and down. Practice this technique on a slow-moving subject first, before gradually trying it out on faster ones.

The crowd's favourite will win a year-long Photocrowd subscription.

Prize details

The crowd's favourite will win a year-long Photocrowd Challenger subscription, worth £30. Our plans give you more ways to enjoy Photocrowd, including more entries into contests and reduced entry fees into a range of top photo awards.

  • If you're already on a subscription, it will be upgraded or extended.
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.
