I am honored to announce that I am hosting the June 2011 edition of “Does my blog look good in this?”, the monthly food photography event, administered by Andrew of Spittoon Extra and referred as “the grandest foodporn event available on the web”!


DMBLGIT is open to bloggers who have posted a food or drink
photograph. Bloggers submit their best photo posted on their blog during the previous month. Photos are then judged and scored.

You can check out the winners from last month at Indian Simmer.

I'll tell you more about the judges in another post.

DMBLGiT 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 between May 1 through 31, 2011.

- The deadline to submit your entry is June 20, 2011 at midnight

The judging:

5 judges (4 judges+me), introduced later this month, will choose 6 winners based on the following criteria:

Aesthetics: composition, food styling, lighting, focus, etc.

Edibility: does the photo make us want to eat your computer monitor?

Originality: a photo that makes you think “Wow! I never thought of photographing it like that before.”

Three overall winners will be selected plus one in each of the 3 categories.

As host I have the privilege of choosing one photo that I think stands out, but wasn’t chosen as a winner.

How to Enter DMBLGiT:

Send me an e-mail with "DMBLGiT Entry" as the subject line to me at:

By submitting a photo, entrants agree to their photo being redisplayed and altered in size on the host’s page and on the Spittoon Extra DMBLGiT page.
