Open to photographers with a gold or silver ranking. There are two other 'Water sports' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
The movement of water is always an unbeatable subject for photographers. When you combine that with the excitement and energy of sports, you’ve got a winning combination. Water Sports is one of the more challenging sports to capture, due to the difficulty in getting to the heart of the action, but with the right lens and the right location, this subject can be a gift.
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.
