Are contests free to enter?
Most contests on Photocrowd can be entered for free by those on the unpaid 'Crowd' membership plan.
The number of free entries you have for a contest depends on your membership level, and the type of contest it is.
For all Community Contests and most Premium Contests the number of free entries you get is a follows:
(free) Crowd plan - 1
Challenger plan - 2
Pro plan - 4
Master plan - 6
The exception is where a Premium Contest is 'Subscriber only' - there are no free entries to these contests for those on the unpaid Crowd plan.
Users on the Crowd plan can also only enter a maximum of 7 contests at the same time. When one of those 7 contests closes to entries and goes into rating/judging, another free slot will open up for you to enter.
The above does not apply for Photo Awards, as they usually have entry fees.
