Open to photographers with a gold or silver ranking. There are two other 'Studio portraits' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
In recent years, the cost of shooting studio portraits has fallen so much that you can now set up your own home studio with only a very modest outlay. Studio photography is a powerful medium as nowhere else does the photographer have so much control over the shot. Lighting, set and arrangement are all yours for the choosing and changing.
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.
