This contest is for your photos of raptors, which are carnivorous medium-to large-sized bird such as a hawks, eagles, owls or vultures, that have a hooked beak and large sharp talons and that feeds wholly or chiefly on meat taken by hunting or on carrion. Try to show the birds of prey doing something, not just "birds on a branch". While images of captive birds are allowed, wild raptor photos are encouraged. I look forward to seeing your beautiful colour or monochrome images of raptors.
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.
