Images should be purely black and white only, with no midtones whatsoever. Think carefully about what subjects are suitable for this treatment, busy backgrounds probably will not work well, unless they are all light or dark to start with. For me, this helps bring art back into photography. I look forward to seeing your creations.
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.
