The largest vessels that sail our seas are ships. Larger than boats (a boat being, by one definition, small enough to be carried on a ship) they haul our cargo, protect our territories, carry sightseers from luxury port to luxury port, and much more besides. Images of the whole or any part of a ship, inside or out, are welcomed, and let’s not worry too much about where the crossover between boat and ship occurs, but the emphasis in this contest is certainly on larger vessels.
This Premium Contest is worth 1.5x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged AND crowd-rated, with your score from each combined. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.
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.
