Open Judging Results

This contest is open to photographers ranked between 251 and 1000 in this week’s Leaderboard.

What do we so often say when we point a camera at people? “Smile! Say cheese!” But not always with the most natural-looking results! Capturing those genuine, disarmed and unaware smiles is a skill learned. It comes from rapport, from creating the right atmosphere, saying the right thing, or from blending in, being quick, unnoticed. The results are worth it - smiles are infectious and can make a picture.

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.

How it works

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.
