This is a colour only competition in which any subject can be featured. The overall impression should be abstract but it must be based on something recognizable even if not clearly defined. Such things as zoom burst, deliberate camera movement or Photoshop can be used.
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.
