The title says it all - the umbrella or parasol has to be held by a person. Please do not enter photos with umbrellas only. Enter both colourful or black & white photos. You can get creative and even use studio photos. Photos with interesting lighting will be appreciated higly.
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.
