This contest is about photographing deliberately out of focus, for example using manual focus. This effect must be done in camera, not using post production software. The whole image must be out of focus: this contest is not about shallow depth of field, not about panning, not about zooming. The out of focus must have an aesthetic reason: with this technique, it is possible to obtain an abstract aspect, shapes that stand out against a contrasting background, points of light etc. I invite you to explore this kind of photography and I wait for your creations.

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.
