The “Big Five” is a term that is used to refer to the five African animals that early big-game hunters considered the most difficult and dangerous animals to hunt on foot in Africa. They are now wonderful creatures which can sometimes be seen on African safaris. The big five animals are lions, leopards, African elephants, rhinoceros and the Cape buffalo. Your photos can show any one of these animals, but please only show live animals, no photos of dead animals. I hope you enjoy the contest.
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.
