Open to photographers with a gold or silver ranking. There are two other 'Sports' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Sports photography is a very broad term, but one that usually shares a few key elements. For example, the photographer may have little control over the posing and background, so camera angles and perspective are important. There may also be an emphasis on capturing 'that perfect moment' so taking lots of shots at a fast shutter speed is advised! Get into (or, close to!) the action, and have fun.
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.
