Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Rivers' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Rivers offer up some great compositional opportunities, from creating leading lines through an image to the possibilities within the patterns and shapes of flowing water. Reflections and colours can also inspire the shot, as well as the wildlife you’ll undoubtedly find nearby. All in all, rivers are one of nature’s gifts to photographers.
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.
