Open Rating Results

We spend such a lot of our lives asleep, but almost all the pictures of us are taken when we’re awake. Shooting people when they’re resting and sleeping can feel a little intrusive, depending on who the subject is and our relationship with them, but it produces intimate portraits and studies that show us at our most unguarded and relaxed.

Our Premium Contests are judged by some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best submitted imagery, and provide valuable feedback that explains their choices, and helps you improve. Judges are confirmed towards the end of a contest. Premium Contests also carry more ranking points, so if you’ve got your eyes set on climbing the leaderboard, they’re a great way to achieve that.

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.
