This contest might almost be seen as nostalgic, given the curb in wedding parties these past two years. There really aren’t any other get togethers of family and friends that match the joy and excitement of a wedding, whether large or small, and for the photographer it’s an opportunity to do a great service to the bride and groom, and capture some of that magic for them to revisit in the years to come. More formal wedding photography has largely given way to the celebrated ‘reportage’ approach, but in our book there’s still plenty to be said for a good shot of a 4-tiered cake being attacked with a knife.
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.
