Open to photographers with a gold or silver ranking. There are two other 'Shadows and silhouettes' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
When photographed thoughtfully, shadows and silhouettes are a subtle but powerful way to convey drama and mood. Although incredibly simple and commonplace, shadows have the power to capture the viewer's imagination and draw them into the story that your shots are setting. Make sure you have a strong understanding of the effects of lighting and light placement before you start. Good luck.
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.
