How does rating work?
Each contest has a submissions period, during which time Photocrowd members can enter photos. Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended and the rating period has begun. Ratings are on a three-star scale - the more stars, the better.
You can see all the images uploaded to a contest before rating begins, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.
To opt out of rating, simply go back to the main contest page and click on the link beneath the Rate photos button that says 'opt out of rating'.
