Open to photographers with a gold or silver ranking. There are two other 'Street photography' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Since it involves chance encounters and random incidents, street photography is a tinder box of creativity. Nothing is staged or set up, and each shot depends on the photographer’s own intuition for knowing the right moment to ‘push the button’. Finding that one poignant moment is the difficulty here, but practise and taking lots of shots will increase your chance of capturing something really special. Good luck!
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.
