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

This contest is for images showing patterns existing in the natural world. The pattern should show lines, shapes or colours which repeat across the subject in a visually appealing way. Your subject could be anything in nature, such as animals and birds, trees, flowers and plants or features of the landscape such as rocks. You may wish to move in close and show an image with a more abstract feel, such as a close up of a zebra's markings, or instead show a wider overall shot of your patterned subject, such as an elaborately decorated butterfly or a landscape with coloured rock strata. Please only enter photos of patterns in nature, nothing artificial or man-made, and make the pattern the focus of your image. I look forward to your entries.

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.
