To enter a contest, photographers are invited to submit images that fulfil its description. We expect
the entries to be original images, containing strong ideas and good technique.
To submit an image to a contest, choose the contests you want your image to take part in on the
Send Photo page in the combo at the bottom. The image will then be sent to the Streamline competition
and to the selected contest(s). (Note that every submitted image automatically takes place
in the Streamline).
The contest is run over a few judged stages, at the end of which the best entries being
picked. A predefined number of top entries from each stage goes further, through to the next stage.

Stages can be judged by PhotoBlink Judges Panel or by the PhotoBlink members (same as on the

The voting scale may differ from the Streamline voting scale, which ranges from 1 to 10. This
may vary from contest/stage to contest/stage. The definitions for the different marks can be found on
the contest details page.
The absolute winners will be named at the end of the final. The number of winning works will be mentioned
in the contest details page too. But every stage can eventually have intermediate winners. Further, category
winners can also sometimes be nominated.
