The opportunities that open up when three images are displayed alongside each other are many. The triptych in art has often been used to show a single scene sliced into three, perhaps with changes of viewpoint. But the presentation of a series of images on a given subject can be used in many other ways too - to show changes over time, changes in behaviour, changes under different conditions, or several varieties or examples of it. All of which can vastly enrich our understanding and appreciation of a subject, and bring a narrative arc into the series. There is no limitation on subject matter in this contest, and the ways in which your three images relate to each other, and are presented, is for you to decide.
Our Premium Contests are judged by some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best submitted imagery, and provide valuable feedback that explains their choices, and helps you improve. Judges are confirmed towards the end of a contest. Premium Contests also carry more ranking points, so if you’ve got your eyes set on climbing the leaderboard, they’re a great way to achieve that.
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.
