Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Wildlife' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Wildlife photography not only relies on camera skills but also a certain degree of field craft knowledge. Some animals are difficult to approach meaning an awareness of their behaviour is needed in order to find them, predict their movements and successfully photograph them. Use your learning to anticipate interesting situations and place yourself where you need to.
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.
