I just realized that I am supposed to be hosting this month's edition of the long-running monthly food photo contest "Does My Blog Look Good In This" (DMBLGIT). Having volunteered months ago, I had no recollection of said contest until I received an entry! For those not in the know, DMBLGIT was started by Andrew Barrow, and you can get more info about it on his site.

Last month's contest was hosted by hosted by Arfi Binsted of HomeMadeS. Here's last month's winner:

I still need several other judges for the panel, so please let me know if you are interested. "david" at this url. And if you're interested in hosting a subsequent month's contest, let Andrew know. He is always looking for more hosts.

The Rules for Participation:

  1. Send a photo that has appeared on your blog during December 2009. The photo should be food and/or drink related. No diptychs allowed.
  2. Your photo must be text-free.
  3. Only one entry per person.
  4. The photograph must have been taken by you.
  5. Deadline for submissions : January 24, 2010.

Send your entry to david AT this blog's url (eatfoo.com) with DMBLGIT in the subject line with the following details:

  • Your name.
  • Your location.
  • Your blog's name and URL.
  • The photograph that you wish to enter, of no more than 500 pixels wide.
  • Your photograph's title.
  • URL of the post containing the photograph.

Every photo entry will be compiled on this DMBLGIT January 2010 photo album. I will try to send everyone an email when I have uploaded your photo to the gallery, so that you know that I received and accepted your entry.

The judges will review your entries on the basis of:

  • 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.

From these categories, the judges will come up with several winners: one overall winner with the top combined score in the three categories, and three additional winners for the photographs with the highest point totals in each of the three individual categories.

By submitting a photo, you agree to your picture being redisplayed and altered in size on my site, in an online Picasa album of all of the contest entries, and on the DMBLGIT page.

Good luck!

I am not too lazy to write an academic paper. I just do not have time for writing. Thus, I need to go to the essay writing service to get custom papers, which are composed by the best writing experts. I understand that a lot of people cannot become successful without writing assistance.

Without a doubt, designer handbags are all the rage! Women seem to collect them the way young boys collect comic books. Without a doubt, there is a handbag to suit your many styles and moods, from sophisticated and chic to adventurous and playful. Designer handbags all have unique traits that distinguish one brand from another. Designers purposely create unique symbols or details to accentuate the differences between themselves and other designers.
