In this contest I would love to see your best photos that show bokeh. Bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced by the lens in the out-of-focus parts of an image. It is generally created when using a wide aperture to create a shallow depth of field, producing a soft foreground and/or backgroud, often with circular out-of-focus highlights to add visual appeal to your photos. Images can be any subject and may be in colour or black and white.

How it works

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.
