DMBLGiT October 2012 – The Winners


It was such a pleasure to be a part of this food photography event. This was my first time hosting the DMBLGiT challenge and I feel quite honored and proud. No such event can ever be successful without enthusiastic participants. So, a big big thank you to all the 39 bloggers for taking time out to send in your beautiful entries. Also, a huge thank you to the super talented judges – Meeta, Ana, Sylvie and Pamela –  who took time out of their busy schedules to to review and score all the gorgeous entries. It was not an easy task to choose the 6 winners out of so many beautiful food photos.
