This contest is open to photographers ranked between 251 and 1000 in this week’s Leaderboard.
Childhood can seem to pass in the blink of an eye, in particular for busy parents, and quality portraits of children are a magical way to memorialise these always-changing moments in the child’s journey. Children at different ages present different challenges for the portrait photographer, and patience is a virtue, but when it works it’s a joyful genre of photography. If the subjects are your own children, strive even harder for excellence in your photography, as your natural feelings may influence you to think more highly of your images than they strictly warrant! The emphasis here is on portraits rather than snapshots of children at play or some other pastime.
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.
