This contest is for your photos of water birds. A water bird is any bird that typically lives on or around water, whether salty or fresh water. Typical species include heron, waders, oystercatcher, cormorant, ducks, geese, swans, coot. Images can show a single bird or several, showing behaviour in or around water, or in flight over water. Both water and the bird must appear in the image.
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.
