An ever-present feature of our world are the wars that affect so many countries. War photography is probably the most dangerous genre of photography that there is, and many photographers have lost their lives in war zones. Images of active conflict are hard-won by those on the frontline. Often equally powerful are images documenting the effects of wars, whilst they are being fought, and in their aftermath. The physical scars on the landscapes and the people, and the emotional and psychological effects that can last a lot longer.
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.
