Ways We Fly

In association with Photocrowd

Open Rating Results

In the last 250 years man has truly got to grips with flying. In 1783 the Montgolfier brothers launched the era of the hot air balloon. Then in the 19th century George Cayley, the ‘father of the aeroplane’ cracked the science of flying as we know it today. The development from there has been truly staggering. Nowadays we fly in planes of all shapes and speeds, helicopters, gliders, paragliders, rockets, and occasionally jetpacks, to name just a few of our incredible inventions.

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.

How it works

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.
