Your photographs must include both a sewing needle and thread. These can be needles and thread used for hand sewing, or a sewing machine needle and thread. Multiple needles and thread are acceptable, as long as there is at least one needle and one piece or roll of thread visible. The thread does not need to be threaded through the needle. Other objects may appear in the photo as long as the needle and thread are the main focus. Colour and black and white photographs are acceptable.
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.
