This contest is open to photographers ranked below 1000 in this week’s Leaderboard.
Trees are an essential and welcome component of the urban environment. The ‘lungs of the city’, urban trees are prized as much for their welcome natural appearance as they are for their powers of filtration. In this contest we’re exploring the ways in which urban planners use trees to break up the bricks and the concrete, and how we engage with trees in our urban habitats. For some inspiration, here are two examples from the master, Cartier-Bresson - Allee du Prado , and Jardins du Palais Royal
Ranked Contests are a weekly chance to compete alongside photographers of a similar Leaderboard ranking. Three contests with the same theme run at one time - for photographers ranked 1-250; 251-1000; and 1001+. They open Saturday morning after that week’s leaderboard has been updated, and are open for 5 days. They are Premium Contests, Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote, so are worth 3x the standard ranking points.
This contest is expert judged only with no rating by the crowd. You will be able to find out how you did when the judging or rating period has closed.
