This contest is open to photographers ranked between 1 and 250 in this week’s Leaderboard.
Waves of the watery kind in this contest. Whether you're shooting from a nice dry beach, or taking your waterproofed camera into the surf, we're exploring the many ways in which water swells and breaks. That could be far out at sea or more commonly when it reaches land. People and craft are welcome in the pictures, so we may see a surfer or a jetski or two.
Ranked Contests are a weekly chance to compete alongside photographers of a similar Leaderboard ranking. Three contests with the same theme run at one time - for photographers ranked 1-250; 251-1000; and 1001+. They open Saturday morning after that week’s leaderboard has been updated, and are open for 5 days. They are Premium Contests, Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote, so are worth 3x the standard ranking points.
This contest is expert judged only with no rating by the crowd. You will be able to find out how you did when the judging or rating period has closed.
