Open to photographers with a gold or silver ranking. There are two other 'Sport' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Sports photography is a genre that covers all sports, at all levels of professionalism – from a local kid’s match to premier league football. The type of lens you choose is critical to good sports photography, as they allow the photographer to reach farther from or closer to the action quickly, in order to keep up with the game play. Longer focal length lenses are typically used to photograph action in sports such as football, while wide angle lenses can be used for sideline and close-up athlete photos.
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.
