Does My Blog Look Good in This | July 2015 Edition – DMBLGiT


I am back with DMBLGiT as a co-host. After hosting it in May 2015, I am co-hosting it along with LFP. You can find the winners for May here.

The idea to include a co-host was to make the contest more transparent, more audience and more participation. For more details on co-host and July event, hop on here.

The specific things the judges will be looking for are as follows:

  • Aesthetics: composition, food styling, lighting, focus, etc.
  • Edibility: “does the photo make us want to dive in and eat the food?”
  • Originality: the photograph that catches our attention and makes us want to say “wow!”, displaying something we might not have seen before.
  • Overall Winner: top overall scores in all three categories combined.
  • There are three overall winners for photographs with the highest point totals in all three categories combined, and one winner in each of the three individual categories. So… ready to participate? To participate simply email me your best photograph you took in June ’15 using the submission instructions below.
