Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Pastel tones' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
The technical definition of 'pastel tones' is a "family of colours which, when described in the HSV colour space, have high value and low to intermediate saturation." In simple terms, these are soft, milky or subdued shades that can be soothing to the eye. Mauve and baby blue are typical pastel colours, and there are many, many more for you to choose from.
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.
