For this contest I want to see your photos with pretty bokeh. The bokeh must be obtained in-camera and not added in photo editing software. For the purpose of this contest, by bokeh I mean the round specks of light obtained with particular lighting conditions, not simply a creamy out of focus area. The bokeh can be in the background, foreground or even on the subject, if you have a very shallow depth of field. It may present as round shapes with wide apertures or you might see the shape of the lens diaphragm blades with a smaller aperture. Colour or black and white photos are both acceptable. Try to get creative with your entries.

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.
