DMBLGIT December 2006 Winners

Does anyone even remember last year ? It suddenly seems like so long ago… but there are still a few loose ends to tie together. That being the announcement of the winners of DMBLGIT for December 2006 ! (Note: All the photos were taken in November 2006, which is why I was initially calling it the November 2006 competition, but have since corrected it, as the competition always runs one month after the photos were taken).

The judges were asked to score each photo submitted on three categories, edibility, originality, and aesthetics. The combination of these categories has been used in the past, and I think it’s a good idea, as there are points in each category to be won for people with less technologically advanced camera setups as others. The scoring was very close in some categories, but I was very happy with the overall results. This means that there is an overall winner, and then a winner of each individual category (who has not already won something else), which means more people coming away with prizes. We had some excellent entries this year, and overall the standard was very very high…

So with no further ado, here are the winners.

Winner of Edibility

Ilva of Lucullian Delights with Balsamic Vinegar and Pistacchio Truffles

Winner of Originality

Jennifer of Fer Food with her beautiful Bacon Flowers

Winner of Aesthetics

This was so close we actually had a three way tie.

Bea of La Tartine Gourmande with her Fall Medley Vegetable Soup — Soupe automnale de légumes variés

Nicole of Pinch My Salt with her Pumpkin Roll

Riana of For the Love of Baking with her Green Tea Pudding

Which leaves us with the overall winner this month being…. drum roll…

Overall Winner

Jules of Stone Soup with her Stuffed Baby Squid

Many thanks to the judges, Celine of Black Salt, Anthony of Spiceblog, Bron of Bron Marshall, Lara of Cook and Eat and Still Life With, for their time and energy, especially over such a time consuming part of the year. Thanks also to Matt of Matt Bites for letting me hack his lovely graphics up for this months prizes, which are available now to be displayed on the winners sites !


Note: despite my attempt at making gold, silver, and bronze coloured prize logos, there is no first, second, or third per se… All winners are winner, and are entitled to show whichever logo they feel best suits the style of their blog.

Thanks again to everyone and congratulation to the winners !

  3. Thank you Matt! This is an honor to be here, once more in such great company. Many thanks to you and the judges for hosting and voting! the winning photos are great, I think (I am not talking about mine here of course). Also, I think that Sam is right, this is the December and not November event. This always confuses me as well!

  4. Thanks Ilva and congratulations… :)

    Sam, I get really confused by these things… I was calling it November all along because the photos were taken in November… but I guess it was the December edition of the competition… Confusing indeed, but I think I’ll update the prize images to say as such.

    Bea, thanks to you as well… It’s great photos like yours that drives others to improve and take great shots themselves. Thanks for participating.

  5. I never thought my photo could get to win any categories in DMBLGIT, ever! Not to mention when I saw the entries for this round, there were so many more photos than previous rounds!
    So, when Matt’s email came to my inbox, it was just like a gigantic happiness hit me and suddenly made my day :)
    Thanks to all judges for voting and Matt for hosting the event so wonderfully. I am so proud to be part of this event! And to win one :)
