There is a fascinating duality to living life on the outskirts of a city: Not quite a thriving city, not quite out in the sticks. Indeed, for many people, "Suburbia" can be synonymous with uniformity and a slower pace of life, as these areas are mostly residential; conveniently located away from (but within commuting distance to) the livelier and diverse inner-cities. That doesn't mean there's less to photograph here, though - it just means you might have to get more creative when capturing the streets and faces of these often overlooked neighbourhoods.
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.
