Open Rating Results

In most parts of the world nowadays sailing is a mainly recreational pursuit, but until the middle of the 19th century the use of wind to propel craft was the primary means of transport across our seas and oceans. This sailing contest encompasses imagery of all manner of ships and boats, as well as the sailors themselves, windsurfers, kitesurfers, and depictions of the sailing life.

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.
