We want to see your best people pictures in this round. As well as a well crafted and technically outstanding photograph what we really want to see is an image in which the photographer has made a connection with the subject revealing an aspect of their personality. This could be a studio shot, a candid capture or environmental portrait - the choice is yours.

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. In this contest, the entries are hidden until 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.
