Does My Blog Look Good in This – September 2007

Seeing as Andrew recently posted the winners of the enduringly popular Does My Blog Look Good in This? event for August, I guess it must be time to announce the next round.  Yes, folks, the Cooksister herself will be hosting this month’s event!

So… what are the rules?

  • Only one food photograph may be entered per person
  • The photograph must have been taken by you
  • The photograph must have been posted on your blog during August of 2007
  • The deadline to submit your entry is October 1 at midnight, UK time
  • A panel of judges will assess the quality of all of the entries before eventually selecting winners from the pictures.  There will be winners in the following categories:
    • Aesthetics: composition, food styling, lighting, focus, etc.
    • Edibility: Does the photo make us want to take a big bite out of our computer monitor while drooling on our keyboard?
    • Originality: a photo that makes you stop, look twice, and think “wow, I never thought of photographing it like that before!”
    • Overall Winner: the photograph that scores the highest when individual scores for Aesthetics, Edibility and Originality are added up.

So how can you join in?

  • Draft an e-mail with DMBLGiT in the subject line.
  • Attach one qualifying food or drink photo, preferably 350 pixels in width.
  • Include the following:
    • Your name
    • Your blog URL
    • The title of the image/what it is
    • The URL of the post where the photo first appeared
    • The camera you used
  • Send me the e-mail

The standard of entries has just been getting higher with each passing month, so I can hardly wait to see what you come up with!
