Open to photographers with a gold or silver ranking. There are two other 'Wide angle view' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
A wide angle view exaggerates perspective and has more depth of field at any given aperture than a longer lens. Wide angle lenses allow for more of the setting to be included in the photograph, and can exaggerate the relative size of various features to make them more prominent and striking. This is a great style for landscape, architectural and interior photographers, in particular.
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.
