What is DMBLGiT?
DMBLGiT or Does My Blog Look Good in This is probably the oldest running food photography contest. This was started by Andrew Barrow of http://www.spittoonextra.biz/ Each month a food photography enthusiast would host this event on their own blog. They would invite entries for the contest and three to four judges to select a winner.
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.
DMBLGit events are hosted each month by food bloggers all over the world. This event can be hosted by anyone who has participant as a contestant in any of the previous DMBLGiT contest.
With so much love for DMBLGiT in the food blogging community, several future months have already been planned. Meet your hosts for upcoming events.
