Gold is a colour that draws the human eye, magnetically. Wars have been fought over the beauty of gold and its connotations which, although typically linked to manmade items such as jewellery and plates, can also be found throughout the natural world. Whether it's in the form of light, flora or the colour in a lion's eye - gold has been capturing the human imagination for thousands of years.
The expert and crowd winners will win a year-long Photocrowd subscription.
The expert judge's winner and the crowd's favourite will both win a year-long Photocrowd Challenger subscription, worth £30. Our plans give you more ways to enjoy Photocrowd, including more entries into contests and reduced entry fees into a range of top photo awards.
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.
