This contest is for your photographs of things that look painful. Photographs should be appropriate for general audiences with nothing of a violent or sexual nature. Entries could be of anything from a sword swallower to a person wearing extremely high heels. Entries may be in colour, black and white, or selective colour.
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.
