Open to photographers with a bronze ranking. There are two other 'Tourist hotspots' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
The downside of photographing busy tourist hotspots is, often, the tourists themselves: hordes of pleasure-seekers who will unknowingly wander in and out of your carefully arranged frames. There's sometimes no avoiding them. If you're shooting on a particularly busy day, why not look for creative ways to incorporate the tourists into your shot? Or, just go at a time when they're unlikely to be there! The perfect moment comes to those photographers who are willing to wait for it, so take your time.
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.
