This contest is for your photos which focus on period costumes and fashions from the past. For the purposes of this contest that is costumes that would have been worn before 1970. Your images should ideally show costumes being worn by people, but museum exhibits can be entered if they show the costumes well. Any type of period costume is acceptable, civilian or military and for any gender. You may wish to show a wider shot or focus on the details. Images may be in colour or monochrome and toned images are acceptable. It would add to the interest of the contest if you are able to provide some information on the period costumes in your image.
As with all my contests, in the interests of fairness, I will not include in the judging any image that bears any watermark or digital signature, or any form of identification in the text, including the hashtags.
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.
