Open to photographers with a gold or silver ranking. There are two other 'Street portraits' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Street portraits could be thought of as 'people watching', but with permission. There's no more fascinating subject than humans, and street portraits offer an unbridled yet fleeting glimpse into an individual's life and personality. Photographing strangers can be intimidating, but if you're open and respectful you might be surprised by how many passers by will happily get involved.
Take a look at our recent blog post, 'Achieving Street Portraits with Impact' for some great tips from Joshua Paul Akers!
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.
