So here it is – a much awaited announcements for winners… and before we get there… let me share something.
For all the past hosts who have supported DMBLGiT, thank you. Hosting this event in Feb month made us realize that this is no small feat. This needs good amount of effort from finding the judges to publishing the announcement of winners.
There are a lot of things involved.
With that said, I also would like to thank all the upcoming hosts. All hosting spots are full for the next one year! Can you imagine that? If we leave out March, which was too soon after we had announced the relaunch, we are booked till Feb 2016!
This is just awesome! You can view upcoming hosts by going to DMBLGiT Hosts
Now to the Feb 2015 contest… let’s start with the awesome judges
Meet the Judges
Finding quality judges is certainly the most difficult piece of hosting DMBLGiT. If you are planning to host DMBLGiT on your website, here’s a tip – find judges early. As early as you can.
I want to thank the judges for Feb contest who gave DMBLGiT community few hours of their time to make this contest relaunch a reality. So now, let’s first meet the judges..
Ilva Beretta is a professional food photography who recently retired from food blogging… She is the blogger behind the amazing food blog Lucullian Delights and photographer at award winning Plated Stories. Ilva is Swedish by birth and lives in Italy in the picturesque Tuscany. Oh just so you know, she holds a PhD in English Renaissance Garden Poetry. Here’s Ilva’s portfolio.
Our next judge for this contest was Peter Georgakopoulos. Peter is a traveler and the guy behind massively loved Souvlaki for the Soul. For his “labour of love” he does it all. He is photographer, chief recipe tester, food stylist, cook and a traveler.
Andrew Barrow is wine connoisseur and wine writer for the likes of AOL, Gaurdian and Via Michelin. In the food blogging world he is best known for administering DMBLGiT for past several years. You can find his wine notes and stories of vineyard at his blog Spittoon.
So let’s begin the announcements…
DMBLGiT Feb 2015 Winners
Each DMBLGiT event has 6 total winners. One in each of these categories Edibility, Originality and Aesthetics – so that’s three. And three positions for overall winners.
For the Feb event, we received many outstanding photographs. We changed the judging process and made all entries anonymous, so all judges (and the host) got images that were serial numbered.
Later, once the winners were selected, we at LFP matched the serial numbers with the participant’s name.
Here are the winners from Feb 2015 –
Edibility Category Winner
Sabrina Rossi of Inside My Bag
Aesthetics Category Winner
Nicole Branan of The Spice Train
