We’ve found many ways to enjoy the water, whether that’s being in it, such as swimming, water polo, and diving; on it, including sailing, kayaking, jet skiing, kite surfing; or under it, exploring the world beneath the waves whilst diving, or snorkelling. If you’re shooting water sports for the first time, just make sure you protect that expensive camera from the water, and take care not getting sand in the body when you’re changing your lenses!
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.
