Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Panning' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Panning is a technique where the photographer follows a moving subject with their camera as they take the photo, resulting in a relatively sharp object against a blurry background. This method is especially effective when capturing a typically speedy object such as a car or a running dog, as it gives the shot a palpable sense of movement.
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.
