Winners: Gabriel with 166 Votes, Sarah with 221 Votes and Bronwyn with 345 Votes and Knitting Satori won the Twitter section!
Congratulations to the winners!
We haven't had a competition for a while! Well, now we've decided to remedy that and Udi from Bokeh Master Kit has come to the rescue with some great prizes! It also fits in nicely with our recent article showcasing 27 Incredible Bokeh Photographs!
What are the Prizes?
We’re giving away three Bokeh Master Kits to the top three winners of the competition. Udi will ship the kits out to you directly! They are funky little attachments that fit on your lens! They are ready out of the box and don’t require any special attachments or software. You can read more about how they work over at their website.
How to Enter
Step 1) Post your best bokeh photograph in the comments below (Use the link under the reply box that says “You can add images to your comment by clicking here” to insert images into the comment). (If you’re not sure how to do bokeh, then check out this great DIY Bokeh tutorial).
Step 2) Make sure you click on the little thumbs icon ( )next to your photo to vote for it.
Step 3) Tell all of your friends to come and vote for your photo by clicking on the thumbs icon!
How is it Judged?
The competition closes one week from today. Which means I will log in next Wednesday morning (Sydney time) and find the three images with the most votes. I’ll then email all of the winners individually so they can get their prize!
If it feels like you’re doing something shonky to win the competition, then don’t do it. We have hired goons and we will use them! 😉
