Urban exploration (often shortened as UE, Urbex) is the exploration of manmade structures, usually abandoned ruins or hidden components of the manmade environment. Photography and historical interest/documentation are heavily featured in the hobby. What I want to see in this contest are your photographs from the inside of manmade structures that now lie abandoned and therefore hidden from the public eye. Photographs showing the exterior of such structures are completely off brief. Having visited many such structures myself over the years, I very much look forward to seeing what you come up with.
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.
