Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Textures and patterns' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Textures and patterns are a great way to add a new dynamic to your photography and can be found just about everywhere. Patterns or repeated shapes can be used as the main subject of your photo, or perhaps as a backdrop to something else. You can even go macro or abstract if you want to get really creative and hone in on the textured element. Think outside the box!
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.
