"Does My Blog Look Good in This ?" January 2013 Announcement

Happy New Year ! Wishing you all a happy new year filled with new beginning, new joy, new hope to your life. With the spirit of new year, I invite you, the loyal participants of "Does My Blog Look Good in This ?" (it's open to the newbie as well), to take part in January 2013 Edition. DMBLGiT is a monthly food photography event administered by Andrew Barrow of Spittoon Extra.

In case you curious who won on previous month, please check the announcement on The Cooking Doctor. I'm so happy to have my photo there as Aesthetics Winner. Interested in being a future host ? It's as easy as one, two, three. First, send a mail to Andrew with "DMBLGiT host" as the subject. Second, find a panel of judges. Third, set everything ready before hand.

Back to the main subject, below are details if you want to participate in this event. See you around !

- 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 December 2012
- Entry must be received before January 20, 2013

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 February 1, 2012.
