Street photography takes a bit of courage. Catching your subjects unawares (or asking them to pose for you) can be a little daunting but the results can be well worth the effort. In the best tradition of street photography we want to see your captures of the emotions and eccentricities of strangers in the street and if the background surroundings enhance your photo so much the better. Photos can be colour or black and white. For inspiration take a look at the street photography of Martin Parr, Alex Webb and of course, the pioneer of street photography Henri Cartier-Bresson.
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.
