For this contest you can enter your photos showing any of the incredible range of water birds. A water bird is any bird that either lives in or around water, such as ducks, swans, grebes, flamingos, cormorants, or herons. The birds can be shown in the water, around the water or even flying, but they must be classed as a water bird.
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.
