Announcing "Does My Blog Look Good in This ?" (DMBLGiT) July 2012


One year ago, I was hosting DMBLGiT July 2011 Edition. Today for the second time, I feel honored to announce that I'm hosting DMBLGiT July 2012 Edition. My biggest thanks goes to Andrew for allowing me to host this event again. "Does My Blog Look Good in This ?" (DMBLGiT) is a monthly food photography event administered by Andrew Barrow of Spittoon Extra. This event is open to all food bloggers around the globe by submitting your best food/drink photos.

For this month edition, I'm supported by 4 gifted and talented food bloggers and food photographers (soon to be announced later this month) on the panel of judges. You can find the rules and submission below. I also invite you to be the future host of DMBLGiT by sending mail to Andrew with "DMBLGiT Host" as subject. Read the detail here.

Don't forget to check lovely photos from the winners of DMBLGiT June 2012 Edition on Sunshine and Smile. Now, let's get to the details.

Rules : 

- Only one entry per person (a single photograph and no diptychs !)
- All pictures must be text free
- The photograph must have been taken by you
- The photograph must have been appeared on your blog in June 2012
- Entry must be received by July 20, 2012

Judging :

Photograph are reviewed by a panel of judges, who score them in three categories : Edibility, Aesthetics and Originality. The host then compiles the score to determine the winners. The specific things the judges will be looking for are as follow :

- Edibility : "does the photo make us want to dive in and eat the food ?"
- Aesthetics : composition, food styling, lighting, focus, etc
- Originality : the photograph that catches our attention and makes us want to say "wow!", displaying something we might not have seen before

There are three overall winners of photographs with highest point totals in three categories combined, and one winner in each of the three individual categories.
I will announce the winners on August 1, 2012.
