I am keen to see your best photos of wading birds, also known as shore birds. No herons, egrets, bitterns or other waterfowl please. Waders are birds that typically live in an estuarine environment or other wetlands and forage for their food in waterside mud. Only photos of birds that are classified as waders please. Examples of acceptable entries would include the curlew (at the larger end of the scale) and the dunlin (at the smaller end) plus sandpipers, snipes and plovers.
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.
