Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Pets' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
These days, pet photography is its own niche. Instagram, for example, awards huge followings to those who manage to capture their furry friends at their cute, goofy or majestic best. Magazines, advertising and entire shows devote themselves to the photogenic appeal of animals - although capturing them well does require certain skills and a great deal of patience!
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.
