Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Pebbles, stones and rocks' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
In a letter to his friend, famous photographer Ansel Adams once wrote “I still believe there is a real social significance in a rock”. Although some felt Ansel’s love of the beauty of nature to be sentimental and naïve, others agreed that nature and the environment has far more impact on humans than towns and cities do. Stones and pebbles are often overlooked, but are the literal foundation to our lives. Get out and explore their shapes and textures.
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.
