Straight Lines

In association with Photocrowd

Open Rating Results

Unless you live inside a ballpool, you may struggle to find excuses for not entering this one. Straight lines are everywhere, but have you done a good job of using them in your photography? Is your composition strong? Your leading line doing a good job of leading? Your parallel lines without parallel? Some subjects scream out for a photowalk, or a trip to a certain building you’ve wanted to shoot, or an afternoon poised over a table getting a still life composition just right. This is probably one of them.

This Premium Contest is worth 1.5x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged AND crowd-rated, with your score from each combined. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.

How it works

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.
