This contest is created and judged by a member of the Photocrowd community. Want to run your own? Find out more >

It is time to sparkle! Show me how you can make precious or semi-precious gemstones shine photographically, either on their own or set in a jewellery piece. The stone needs to be the feature of your photograph. If you know what type of stone it is, please share your knowledge in the title or description. (The contest banner photo features a koroit matrix opal, i.e. a matrix of a tan ironstone with opal flashes. These pretty formations are found in the Yowah region of Queensland, Australia.)

Please note that the following types of entries will not be considered for judging: off-brief photos and photos containing watermarks/names. Raters are also asked to mark “off-brief” entries accordingly. Fresh work, photos with a title, and natural-looking processing in post-production are favoured.

How it works

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.
