Many architectural design features are repeated, and are a gift to photographers looking for engaging compositions. Windows, panelling and cladding, brickwork, arches and types of ornamentation can all be used en masse in buildings both new and old. They offer an opportunity for symmetrical compositions, or ones that that are shot more obliquely, to create an image with greater dynamism. If shooting new work for this contest, be sure to have spent some time really exploring your architectural subject from lots of different angles, to be sure that you’ve found the best way to show off the building, and impress the viewer.
This contest is open to Photocrowd subscribers (Challenger/Pro/Master), or by purchasing entries.
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.
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.
