The sea is a place of wildly varying drama and moods that has inspired artists and poets forever. One day serene and calm, the next alive and dangerous, they are shot as everything from minimalist tonal studies to classic landscapes with coastal cliffs and vast sunsets.

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.

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.
