Zoom burst

In association with Photocrowd

Open Rating Results

Zoom burst photography, also known as zoom blur photography, is a technique that involves zooming in or out during the time when the shutter is open. It’s a relatively easy effect to achieve but, like all photographic techniques, takes time and practice to master. Have a look at some of our previous Zoom Burst contests for inspiration.

The crowd's favourite will win a year-long Photocrowd subscription.

Prize details

The crowd's favourite will win a year-long Photocrowd Challenger subscription, worth £30. Our plans give you more ways to enjoy Photocrowd, including more entries into contests and reduced entry fees into a range of top photo awards.

  • If you're already on a subscription, it will be upgraded or extended.
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.
