This contest is for your colour photos of sandpipers and other members of this wading bird family (Scolopacidae). This family of birds includes yellow-legs, sandpipers, dunlins, snipes, curlews etc. These are relatively small water birds with long legs and long beaks. Please no egrets or herons which are not in the family of Scolopacidae. Colour photos only please.
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.
