In this contest I want to see your black and white photos of textures, which convey how something feels to the touch. The subject of your image can be any textured item you like, from smooth silky fabric to rough wood. You may wish to move in close for a more abstract view, or show a slightly wider scene of the subject in its setting. Either way, you should show the physical texture of your subject, not the visual patterns. Toned images (eg sepia or blue toned) are not allowed in this contest, images should be black and white only.
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.
