It's the photographer that counts, not the camera... right? This is the category to prove the point. Use your smartphone camera to capture a stunning image. Any subject will do, but we are still looking for a quality image, taken with care, creativity and vision!

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. In this contest, the entries are hidden until 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.
