Bokeh

This is the quality of out-of-focus or “blurry” parts of the image produced by a camera lens and not to be confused with the blur that separates a subject from the background as the result of shallow depth of field.

An obvious emphasis on bokeh should ensure success in the competition.

For inspiration and examples have a look at https://photographylife.com/what-is-bokeh

According to Oxford Dictionary bokeh is pronounced like “bouquet" as in bunch of flowers.
