Part of PhotoX Awards 2018

Open Rating Results

PhotoX invites you to explore the theme of “Wilderness”, from the unbound freedom we find in nature to human propensity to release ourselves from the chains of regulations or convention.


Prizes include £2000 GBP cash for the overall PhotoX winner, £100 GBP cash for the category winners and exhibition spaces at the PhotoX Finalists's Exhibition and the New Artist Fair in London.

Prize details

The expert panel's winner and the crowd vote winner will both receive a £100 GBP cash, and will be exhibited at the PhotoX Finalists's Exhibition at London's Menier Gallery, 10th - 14th July 2018. They will also appear at the New Artist Fair in London, 31st August - 2nd September 2018.*

Approximately 10 images from the 'Wilderness' category will be shortlisted for the overall PhotoX winners' prize, and will be exhibited at the PhotoX Finalists's Exhibition at London's Menier Gallery, 10th - 14th July 2018.*

The grand prize, presented to the overall winner of the PhotoX Awards 2018 is £2,000 GBP cash.

*Every shortlisted photographer selected for the exhibition is entitled to the subsidised professional fine art printing and mounting package sponsored by Genesis and supported by Fujifilm. Photographers of course can choose to send in their own prints framed and mounted as they wish, to be received one week before the exhibition opening.

How it works

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. In this contest, the entries are hidden until 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.
