This contest is open to photographers ranked between 1 and 250 in this week’s Leaderboard.
There are myriad ways in which shop owners craft their storefronts, and display their wares. From the functional and uninspired, to elaborate and artistic creations that can draw crowds to signature stores, and put Turkish bazaars on the tourist trail. There are national and regional variations that give a distinct look to high streets, but at the increasingly popular out of town shopping centres there is a sameness to the shopfront designs that does away with much of that local and historical character.
Ranked Contests are a weekly chance to compete alongside photographers of a similar Leaderboard ranking. Three contests with the same theme run at one time - for photographers ranked 1-250; 251-1000; and 1001+. They open Saturday morning after that week’s leaderboard has been updated, and are open for 5 days. They are Premium Contests, Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote, so are worth 3x the standard ranking points.
This contest is expert judged only with no rating by the crowd. You will be able to find out how you did when the judging or rating period has closed.
