Love it or hate it, spicy food is the staple for countless cultures across the world and is shamelessly borrowed by others who can't get enough of its kick and depth of flavour. Happily for this contest, the spices and seasonings in hot food make them some of the most colourful and photogenic dishes out there. So, get your glass of milk at the ready and dive in!
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.
