Open Rating Results
Brief

Photoshop (and other image editing software) has allowed us to create images that are impossible to capture in camera. From the beautiful to the bizarre, composites created from our own photos allow us to unleash our imagination and creativity!

From a portrait of Lincoln composited in the 1860s to the Cottingley Fairy photos of 1917, photo manipulation has existed for as long as photographs have. And in February of 1990, when Adobe released the first version of Photoshop, compositing images became available to any photographer with a computer. Fast forward to today, and you will be hard pressed to find any photo in the media that hasn’t been manipulated or composited in some way.

We want to see your imagination unleashed. The rules are simple: at least two different photos, solely taken by yourself, must have been used to create your composite. Give us your twisted, dark, bizarre, beautiful and whimsical! We want composites that would be impossible to capture in camera.

The judge's winner will receive the Nucly complete pack, and the crowd winner will receive the Nucly complete asset pack!.

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.
