Judging Criteria

First of of all, we would like to thank you for your submissions – we thoroughly enjoyed reviewing the entries.


So many excellent entries are submitted to the contest. The voting process unfortunately resulted in the elimination of many good images. The winning photographs you see posted on the site feature a strong combination of the assets we sought in an image.


An explanation of our judging criteria – used as a guideline during the voting process – follows.

We sought images that had thoughtful attention to aesthetic; awareness of light as an essential component of image formation, colors, composition,and other elements. We looked for your creativity and “personal vision” in each image. We also required that entries pertained to the contest theme, “Detroit’s Sacred Places”, and were accompanied by an artist statement – which we absolutely delighted in reading!


Thank you very much for participating Detroit’s Sacred Places photography contest.
