DMBLGIT #10 WINNERS ANNOUNCED

Posted on November 2, 2005 by Aun

Greetings and salutations! I’ve just returned from a fantastic eating and shopping holiday in Shanghai. I’ll try and post about some of the great food I, my wife and 2 traveling companions consumed over the past week. But, first, something so many of you have been waiting for… the results of Does My Blog Look Good In This #10.

First, for those of you who emailed me on the 27th (October) or later, I apologize for not being able to sneak you into the judging. I had, before leaving town, emailed the judges the entries and while traveling could not add new pictures to the list.

And so, the best food shot posted by a food blogger in the month of September is a beautiful shot of apples taken by Andrew of SpittoonExtra.

Andrew is also our Aesthetics Champ this month. The first runner-up in that category is a shot taken by Cookie Crumb of I’m Mad and I Eat. It’s a great, slightly zen shot.

This month’s Eatability Champ was taken by Stephen of Stephencooks.

It’s a mouth-watering shot of some delicious-looking pear bread pudding.

Our Originality Champ is a delightful picture taken by Shauna of Gluten-free Girl.

Congrats to all the winners and many thanks to the 46 bloggers whose entries we evaluated and the few extras that came in a tad too late to take part. Also, huge thanks go to this month’s judges:

Laura from Cucina Testa Rossa
Michele from Oswego Tea
Monkey Gland from Jam Faced
Tara from Seven Spoons
Lynn from To Short Term Memories

All the best to all food bloggers, friends and readers. Stay tuned for my super-yummy Shanghai report.

    Cheers for voting for me people – i am well pleased; especially as it was one of the first photos I took with my new camera.

    Shauna: It was a great photo. Congrats.

    Cookie: It was a close competition in the Aesthetics category. 2 points separated your shot and Andrew’s.

    Andrew: Oooh, new toy. What camera?

    Kitchenmage: All the pix from this month’s judging are available at http://dmblgit10.blogspot.com. The entries, however, are numbered and anonymous. This is the site the judges referred to when making their decisions.

    Augustus: Hi, it was really fun hosting. Cheers!

    Is there a compilation of all the entries somewhere?

  10. 2-minute Noodle Cook November 4, 2005 at 3:03 pm

    Congrats all winners! Andrew, please share the secret of how your photo was taken. What camera model did you use? what settings? The side lighting works really well.

  11. Rachael November 5, 2005 at 11:09 am

    I would love to see all the entries, is that not something you are going to do?

    Thanks, and congrats to the winners!

  12. Rachael November 5, 2005 at 11:10 am

    oops, I see there is link, sorry!

  13. Rachael November 5, 2005 at 11:14 am

    OK, now that I have seen that link…do you think you will be doing a roundup with links? I’d love to learn more about some of those interesting shots (and I do sort of wonder if its just my computer or what, but my photo there is HUGE! LOL), do you mind doing that?

    THANKS!
