To celebrate its 100-year anniversary, lens manufacturer Meyer Optik Gorlitz is holding a photography contest to win a limited-edition gold-plated Trioplan 100mm f/2.8 lens, with a runner-up prize of a titanium-covered lens.

The Trioplan 100mm f/2.8 is ideal for creating ‘soap-bubble bokeh’ in your images and comes in a range of mounts for both DSLR and mirrorless cameras.

For a chance to win a limited-edition version of this lens, the 100 for 100 Soap Bubble Bokeh Contest asks people to send in their best photo in which bokeh features as part of the composition, and was taken with a Meyer Optik lens (new or old).

The winner will receive a Golden Eye gold-plated 100-year Anniversary edition of the Trioplan 100. The runner-up will receive a Titanium 100-year anniversary edition of the lens.
