For this Still Life contest the main subject must be the food. The viewer needs to see the food first and foremost in the image. Please remember this is a still life contest only, so the image will usually be taken in a home or studio type setup. Often people use ingredients as well as whole foods in the shot, and these are then carefully placed and with consideration to the lighting.
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.
