Religious artefacts and objects of worship

In association with Photocrowd

Open Rating Results

Objects that evoke one’s beliefs are common in all religions, and often form part of regular worship - think of the nine-candled Jewish menorah, Christian rosary prayer beads, a Muslim prayer mat, or the Hindi arti lamp. In other contests we celebrate religious architecture, or the act of worship and religious gathering, but this is an opportunity to consider the objects that, on a smaller level, embody our connections with a higher power.

Our Premium Contests are judged by some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best submitted imagery, and provide valuable feedback that explains their choices, and helps you improve. Judges are confirmed towards the end of a contest. Premium Contests also carry more ranking points, so if you’ve got your eyes set on climbing the leaderboard, they’re a great way to achieve that.

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.
