DMBLGiT Jan 2016

DMBLGiT Jan 2016

We re-launched DMBLGiT in February 2015… just about an year ago.

At least twice a year, LFP hosts DMBLGiT contest to put all our energy in this contest. In these months, we try something different and run secret and sometimes not so secret experiments. This is one of those months. And this month, we are again experimenting with something. 

What is the experiment? Well, you’ll have to wait to find that out later.

How to Win This – Judging Criteria

Photographs are reviewed by a panel of judges, who score them in three categories: edibility, aesthetics, and originality. The host then compiles the scores to determine the winners. 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.

This how we select the winners and you can participate and improve your food photography.

So.. ready to participate? To participate simply email us your best photograph you took in December 2015 using the submission instructions below.
