This contest is open to photographers ranked between 1 and 250 in this week’s Leaderboard.
Everywhere you look, there’s plastic. Super useful and adaptable, it’s transformed our world, but now seems like it’s getting into more places than we’d really appreciated, or would like it to, and production is still rising. Our food and products come wrapped in it, our kids play with it, our cars and buildings are full of it, and annually, globally, about 50kg of plastic is produced per person. You may have some compelling images of plastic objects in your archive, but you may also want to pick up your (part-plastic) camera, start looking around and be reminded just how surrounded by the stuff we are.
Ranked Contests are a weekly chance to compete alongside photographers of a similar Leaderboard ranking. Three contests with the same theme run at one time - for photographers ranked 1-250; 251-1000; and 1001+. They open Saturday morning after that week’s leaderboard has been updated, and are open for 5 days. They are Premium Contests, Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote, so are worth 3x the standard ranking points.
This contest is expert judged only with no rating by the crowd. You will be able to find out how you did when the judging or rating period has closed.
