"You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” ― Ansel Adams
Every city has an ongoing story and its inhabitants are the ones telling it. Dogwalkers, street sweepers, beach bums and park lovers author their city with their intertwined encounters. Show me the candid portraits* of the real authors of your city. Talk to your streets, listen to what they have to say. Pour your heart out to the pigeons, let the concretes lead your way. Dance with a homeless, pose for a street artist. Merge into your surroundings as candidly as you may.
*A candid photograph is a photograph captured without creating a posed appearance.
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.
