DMBLGiT: Meet the Judges

Entries for the July edition of Does My Blog Look Good in This have now closed.

A record number of 66 entries were received, all of which will now be assessed by a panel of personally hand-picked judges. These are all fantastically talented foodbloggers whom I have long admired. They take awe-inspiring photos, write well-crafted posts and, most importantly, have a love of all things food.

Now meet the judges...

Matt is a Director of Advertising and Creative Services and the genius behind Matt Bites. His photos are clean, balanced and annoyingly brilliant; his posts are honest, thought-provoking and pretty darn funny too. And if you think being a professional food photographer is all fun and glamour, you can read all about A Day In (His) Life here

J, of Kuidaore, is one of the hardest working foodbloggers I know. Every post she does is meticulously researched and well-written with tantalisingly evocative descriptions. And then there are her photographs. Not only is she insanely talented in the kitchen (including mastering the art of the macaron), but she consistently captures beautifully styled photos of her exquisite creations that truly take your breath away...

Julia writes Aroma Cookery, one of the first food blogs I visited when I started my own two years ago. Julia eats out a lot, she photographs everything, and she loves a bargain--we have so much in common! It takes self-control to photograph everything before you eat it, but I'm so glad she does...

Melissa from The Traveler's Lunchbox has that enviable ability to tell a story that leaves you hanging on her every word. Interweaving food history with personal musings and entertaining anecdotes, Melissa peppers her writings with beautifully captured photographs, ones so vivid and sharp that you would think you were reading a glossy lifestyle magazine...

So as judging takes place, I encourage you to take a look at their blogs as well as those of all this month's participants'. The final gallery of entries can be viewed here.

The waiting game is always nerve-racking, so I am hoping that winners should be announced by August 1, 2006. Please check back here for the final winners in the categories of eatability, aesthetics and originality plus a few extra awards to be announced on the day.

Thank you everyone for entering. The final pool is diverse and impressive and we have a hard task ahead!
