In association with That Wild Idea

Open Rating Results

A great portrait has the power to tell a story and captivate the viewer. Some of the most famous photos and painting in history are portraits. We are looking for candid and engaging portraits. Think about the story the you are trying to tell and pay attention to the background and surroundings. Environmental portraits are also acceptable. We want to see interesting faces that are focused and lit well.

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.
