This contest is open to photographers ranked between 1 and 250 in this week’s Leaderboard.
Performing in public, for tips and the appreciation of the crowd, dates back to antiquity, and covers the full range of the performing arts, from acrobatics and music, to living statues and storytelling. There’s usually action and excitement aplenty to be captured with the camera, and getting as close as possible to the performance will pay dividends. Your conscience might also incline you to chuck a bit of change in the hat as a thank you for the chance to take some snaps.
Ranked Contests are a weekly chance to compete alongside photographers of a similar Leaderboard ranking. Three contests with the same theme run at one time - for photographers ranked 1-250; 251-1000; and 1001+. They open Saturday morning after that week’s leaderboard has been updated, and are open for 5 days. They are Premium Contests, Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote, so are worth 3x the standard ranking points.
This contest is expert judged only with no rating by the crowd. You will be able to find out how you did when the judging or rating period has closed.
