This contest is about Streetscapes or 'The Landscape of the Street'... It is about the overall visual environment of the street, road, square or plaza wherever that may be. To clarify the essentials of the brief it may be helpful if I point out that the contest is not about people in the street (that's street photography) or individual buildings (that's architecture) or street furniture or shopfronts ... Of course people may populate your streetscape but the key point here is that the image should not be about the people. It is quite simply a contest about the landscapes created by the built environment that surrounds most of us.
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.
