This contest is for your best photographs of burls, bumps and knots on the trunk of a tree. These areas are where the tree has grown in a deformed manner and can be very beautiful to photograph. Your image can be of burls, bumps and knots on any tree in a natural setting.
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.
