Winter can be a difficult time for plants. A shortage of sunlight and icy conditions make survival a whole lot harder for the average shrub. But the hardy few who sprout out to face the frost (in even the most barren of environments) reward us nature photographers who are keen-eyed enough to spot, and photograph, their unique beauty.
Winners and highly commended finishers will gain LumeJet prizes worth £30, as well as exposure across Photocrowd.
Crowd-voting only: The winner will receive a LumeJet voucher worth over £30 - earning you either a high-quality 1m print or equivalent value products! The winner and high-placed finishers will also gain exposure on Photocrowd’s ‘Best photos’ page and could make it onto our social media channels!
LumeJet voucher may be used against any online order and international shipping in a single transaction at lumejet.com within 28 days.
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.
