Open to photographers with a gold or silver ranking. There are two other 'Technique – freezing movement' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Freeze motion photography is a popular and deceptively simple technique where a photographer using a high shutter speed is able to "freeze" the trajectory of an object moving at a certain speed within a scene, showing a clear and focused snapshot of the action. In order to keep maximum focus, some pre-planning is involved, so do some research and show us what you can do.
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.
