Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Portraits' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Portrait photography is the subtle art of combining the right techniques with creative flair. You want to take portrait shots that capture inherent character of your subject and captivate the attention of your viewers. Play around with composition, angles, lighting and backdrops to find the best effect to complement your subject.
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.
