Slow shutter speeds

In association with PhotoPlus

Open Rating Results
Brief

In this Canon-only contest, we want to see you getting creative by slowing down the shutter speed to convey a sense of passing time. This could be a long exposure of a landscape taken on a tripod or an energetic panning shot. If you don't have a suitable image to upload try experimenting with the Tv mode on your Canon camera to set a slower shutter speed than you'd usually use and see how you get on!

Read the 'Brief in detail' tab for image requirements.

The judges' first 3 photos will win a download for Affinity Photo for PC or Mac desktop worth £48.99, and your picture will have a chance of being published in PhotoPlus magazine, as we'll print our favourite top ten!

DO: Ensure your photo was taken on a Canon camera. Have EXIF data in your photo (or supply the camera settings in the info section). Provide a title for your photo. Write a description of the photo you're entering of at least 50 words to give us the background of what the image is of and how it was taken. A little context can go a long way! Check your photo has a resolution of at least 3000 pixels on the longest edge of the photo as we will be printing our top picks in PhotoPlus magazine.

DO NOT: Have a watermark on your photograph. Supply images taken on camera systems other than Canon. Submit low-resolution pics

How it works

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.
