All words referring to the same stripped-back pastime of pulling on your boots, packing a sandwich and (usually) enjoying the exploration of our world’s natural spaces by foot. As an antidote to our electronic and often desk-bound existences, it can’t be beaten. Images submitted must show people who are actually doing some hiking, rather than simply be shots taken whilst you were out hiking. Mountaineering shots are fine, but at the point at which ropes and harnesses feature, we might be straining the brief a little.
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.
