The Colour Black

In association with Photocrowd

Open Rating Results

Is black a colour, or just a lack of colour? Mysterious, sinister, and foreboding, or atmospheric, stylish and cool - black is an immensely powerful colour that dictates the mood and the meaning of a photograph. For the avoidance of doubt, images must in colour, but of black objects and scenes, and not simply be black and white images.

Our Premium Contests are judged by some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best submitted imagery, and provide valuable feedback that explains their choices, and helps you improve. Judges are confirmed towards the end of a contest. Premium Contests also carry more ranking points, so if you’ve got your eyes set on climbing the leaderboard, they’re a great way to achieve that.

How it works

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.
