Good street photography combines an eagle-eyed observance of your environment with the technical skill and dexterity required to compose and quickly fire off the right shots when a situation presents itself. Do you stake out a particular scene from afar in the manner of Cartier-Bresson, or get in people’s faces like Joel Meyerowitz? All of life is there on the street, and the camera offers the perfect medium to capture it.
Our Premium Contests are judged by some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best submitted imagery, and provide valuable feedback that explains their choices, and helps you improve. Judges are confirmed towards the end of a contest. Premium Contests also carry more ranking points, so if you’ve got your eyes set on climbing the leaderboard, they’re a great way to achieve that.
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.
