Photo contest with categories
Is it all a matter of taste? One and the same photo can please one viewer and not the other. Moreover, the perception of quality depends on the experience, knowledge and culture of the viewer. So how can you objectively evaluate photos and learn something from these evaluations?
Voting categories help to define evaluation criteria. Popular criteria in photo clubs for image review or image judging are, for example, shooting and editing technique, image composition and design, image message and motif. With these or similar categories, a fairer and more objective judgment can be formed when analyzing the images. Once the jurors have evaluated all the images in the categories, the votes are combined.
This has advantages for the jurors as well as for the photographers. It is easier for the jurors to make a well-founded judgment than if they make their overall impression the basis of their evaluation. The photographers get a more precise analysis and can recognize weak points in their work and learn from it.
For this reason it is now possible to create rating criteria or voting categories in PollUnit. If you use the PollUnit photo contest maker you can choose category winners as well as the overall winner.
