Open to gold and silver-ranked photographers only. There are two other 'Squares and rectangles' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
In art and photography, shapes are one of the most fundamental design elements. They convey a great deal of information to the viewer. The way they interact with the negative space and other objects in the image tells the viewer something about the object's proportion, its relationship to the other objects and how important or dominant it is. We'd like you to show us how you can make use of squares and rectangle in an interesting way for this contest. If you can't find any strong shapes in the scene, try a different perspective or angle.
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.
