This contest is open to subscribers (members on the Challenger, Pro and Master subscription tiers). However if you're not a paying subscriber you can still purchase entries for £2 (GBP) per image.
The term ‘Bokeh’ comes from the Japanese word for ‘blur’ or ‘haze’ and that’s (very generally) what it is. Bokeh is the soft, out-of-focus background effect you get when shooting a subject with a fast lens at a wide aperture. It’s a pleasing aesthetic quality that might be described as smooth, soft or silky. Tip: to increase the likelihood of creating visible bokeh in your photographs, increase the distance between your subject and the background.
The winners will receive a 100% discount on ANY single order from the Contrastly store!
Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.
Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
