Does My Blog Look Good in This-"DMBLGIT" Announcement October, 2010

Print Friendly and PDF I am the proud recipient of 5 DMBLGIT honors of long ago, it seems, but I have never hosted this fabulous event showcasing some of the best of food and drink from bloggers all around the globe. The brain child of  Andrew of Spittoon Extra , DMBLGIT has been called by some "the grandest food porn event available on the web". Winners are selected in three categories- edibility, aesthetics and originality, plus three overall winners. Judges will be announced later this month. Looking forward to seeing your photos and reading your posts.

Here are the rules:

  • Only one food/drink photograph may be entered per person.
  • The photograph must have been taken by you.
  • The photograph must have been posted on your blog during September 2010.
  • The deadline to submit your entry is 25 October 2010 at midnight, Indian Standard Time.
  • A panel of judges will assess the quality of all of the entries before eventually selecting winners from the pictures. There will be winners in the following categories:
    • Aesthetics: composition, food styling, lighting, focus, etc.
    • Edibility: Does the photo make us want to take a big bite out of our computer monitor while drooling on our keyboard?
    • Originality: a photo that makes you stop, look twice, and think "wow, I never thought of photographing it like that before!"
    • Overall Winner: the photograph that scores the highest when individual scores for Aesthetics, Edibility and Originality are added up.
    • Results will be announced on 1st November 2010.
How can you join in?
  • Draft an e-mail with DMBLGIT in the subject line.
  • Attach one qualifying food or drink photo, preferably 400 pixels in width.
  • Include the following:
    • Your name

    • The title of the image/what it is
    • The URL of the post where the photo first appeared
    • The camera you used

    • Please note that by submitting a photo, entrants agree to their photo being redisplayed and altered in size on the host's page and on the SpittoonExtra DMBLGiT page.
    • I have created a gallery in Picasa where I will be adding your photos within 48hrs of submission. I will also acknowledge your email. If you do not receive an acknowledgment within 48hrs. please leave a message in the comment section of this post.
