Welcome tigerdan to POTN.

Not wishing to be rude, but is it meant to be so out-of-focus? (OOF)

it took me about 5 minutes, but I figured it out. Look at all the other entries. This contest is a promotion for "The Institute of Chartered Accountants". Apparently that brand has something to do with the number "1". The idea is to take a picture of a physical cutout of "1" with something else. Looking at all the other entries, the "1" is the part that is in focus and there is a foreground or background that is out of focus. At first, I thought "1" was a watermark provided by the contest, ut now I see that "1" is actually the subject! VERY weird if you ask me.
