Please submit your best silhouette photos, B/W or Colour but no composites, please read the guidelines below, anything not fitting this exact brief should be marked as NOT ON BRIEF, good luck.
A silhouette is the image of a person, animal, object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single color, usually black, with its edges matching the outline of the subject. The interior of a silhouette is featureless, and the whole is typically presented on a light background. The silhouette differs from an outline, which depicts the edge of an object in a linear form, while a silhouette appears as a solid shape.
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.
