Not every portrait needs to be a serious work of art. The photo needs to portray an unusual look that could be comical or theatrical in its result, that includes faces such as "sinister", "shock" or "angry" to name but a few. Many of us have those fun or even accidental shots where the subject produces an unexpected result. From home snaps to journalistic images of the famous, a moment is often captured that results in a comical or unflattering image. You could even try a self portrait. Colour or monochrome images are both accepted. I hope you have fun with this one and I look forward to seeing the results.
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.
