Our streets at night can range from a heaving city intersection, aglow with neon and partygoers falling over each other, to a near-deserted lamplit street with a solitary figure heading home from a late night at the office. It can take courage enough to capture life on the street, but especially so after dark, when a photographer’s presence may unsettle subjects more. The results, though, have an atmosphere all of their own, and document the way we live our lives after the sun goes down.
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.
