I am looking forward to seeing your photos of steampunk, either people in steampunk inspired costumes or steampunk related images captured at one of the many steampunk festivals held around the world. Steampunk features modern technology with a retro look. The Steampunk aesthetic is inspired by the fashions of Victorian era in England (1837-1901), but also by the Belle Epoque in France (1871- 1914) and the civil war era in the United States (1861-1865). The clothing from these eras is often modernised by the addition of mechanical elements with gears showing. Images can be colour or monochrome.
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.
