Announcing – DMBLGIT April 2012

I am thrilled to announce that I am hosting DMBLGIT (Does My Blog Look Good In This) for the month of April! The submissions for this contest are always amazing.

If you are unfamiliar with the contest, the rules are quite simple. Enter your photograph by April 20, 2012. A group of judges that I have selected, who will be revealed later this month, will review the submissions and choose the winners for several categories. The winners will receive badges to place on their site.

Details for the contest are as follows:

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.

– Only one entry per person (a single photograph, no diptychs)
– The photograph must have been taken by you.
– The photograph must have appeared on your blog during the month of March.
– Entries must be received by April 20, 2012 at midnight EST (U.S.)

What do you have to do to join the event?
Send your entry to wendy {at} laphemmephoodie (dot) com with DMBLGIT as the subject. Please include the following:
– your name
– your blog’s name and URL
– your photograph’s title
– the URL of the post containing the photograph
– type of camera used, lens if you wish
– Please send photos in an attachment to your email in a jpeg format, of no more than 500 pixels in width. Photographs must be text free.

All submissions will be posted to the April 2012 DMBLGIT gallery, which will be updated as I receive entries. Please give me a few days to update the gallery with your submission. Feel free to make sure your photograph is included once I start publishing them.

Check out last month’s gorgeous submissions and the winners at My Diverse Kitchen, the host of the March 2012 contest. If you are interested in hosting a future edition of DMBLGIT, send an email to Andrew with “DMBLGIT Host” as the subject line.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the contest. I will announce the winners on May 1, 2012.

I look forward to your entries. Good luck everyone!!!

*Please note that by submitting a photograph, entrants agree to their photograph being redisplayed and altered in size on the host’s page, the Picassa album and on the SpittonExtra DMBLGIT page.

    This sounds like fun or embarrassment. I gave it a try and e-mailed a photo. Thanks for hosting this.
