Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Steps and stairs' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
In the design of a building, stairs are often as much about the beauty of design as they are practical. Whether spiral, square, wooden or metal – steps create an infinite array of patterns and lend themselves beautifully to abstract studies. They can guide the eye; leading to different places and sometimes overlapping, which acts as an excellent basis for a photo’s composition.
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.
