Open Rating Results

Open to photographers with a gold or silver ranking. There are two other 'Smile' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.

Smiling for a camera is such a default position – a natural response. Why, then, is it such a difficult thing to do? Asking someone to smile is asking them to imitate a normally spontaneous, natural reaction. It’s little surprise, then, that the result can be less than convincing. Use your ingenuity to capture a genuine smile for this contest.

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.
