Surprising Abstracts

In association with Photocrowd

Open Judging Results

How does an abstract surprise? Maybe when it’s something familiar, but looks unrecognisable. Or it looks very familiar, but is something completely different? Abstracting our subjects, through compositional chicanery, getting up close, playing with viewpoints - however you choose - allows for a refreshing, interesting, and sometimes surprising new take on the world.

This Premium Contest is worth 3x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.
