At their best, urban waterways provide a welcome, natural respite from the endless bricks, concrete and glass of our towns and cities. Tree-lined arteries to stroll along, escape the noise, and spot some waterbirds. At their worst they have been built over, and only make occasional appearances, often to be decorated with a shopping trolley and other refuse. Urban waterways can offer grand photographic opportunities, as well as smaller studies of the life of a river, and how we currently choose to interact with them.
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.
