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.
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.
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.
