This contest is created and judged by a member of the Photocrowd community. Want to run your own? Find out more >

Share your best landscape shots of the total solar eclipse of August 21st, 2017. Images must include the eclipsed Sun and local landscape elements. The theme here is to show us where you were, to use your imaging tools to create a sense of place and wonder. Open to all formats of photography from scanned film images, digital composites for the sake of expanding tonal range, frame grabs from video footage and spherical content. Smartphone images are highly recommended to not detract from your viewing experience.

Images may be in portrait or landscape mode but must contain landscape elements and not be a composite of elements from different locations. There will be a separate contest for best telephoto rendering of the total solar eclipse.

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.
