These sky-reaching edifices were built with a clear function in mind – defense of a building or settlement, and calling the community to prayer. As such they exist within a context, often nestled within a larger building, a fort or castle, or a religious building. Images might focus just on the tower, set against the sky behind, or show the fuller scene, and perhaps bringing in the modern day setting within which they exist.
This Premium Contest is worth 1.5x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged AND crowd-rated, with your score from each combined. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.
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.
