[I apologize that this was not posted first thing in the morning. One of our 8 dairy goats decided to have kids this morning!]
I want to thank each and every one of the 61 contestants for entering their beautiful photos for this round of DMBLGIT. You people are just amazing! I knew when the images were coming in that it was going to be hard to judge.
As per the rules of DMBLGIT the judging went as follows:
Each image could get anything from a 1 (lowest) to a 10 (highest) score for each category.
The three categories:
Over-all winners were selected by adding the scores of each category and then the sums from each judge were averaged together.
You will see below that we had ties in various places, all according to the numbers.
After these winners were chosen, they were redacted from the scoring in the next round. Once I did that, I selected the image with the highest score in each category.
As the host (and number cruncher and image collator and general administratix) I got to select an image that wins the host prize.
Just as a reminder, the judges for this month, other than myself, were:
- Curt, at the Bucky’s BBQ and Bread blog
- Bee, at the jugalbandi blog
- Vera at the Baking Obsession blog
- Ilva, at the Lucullian Delights blog
So, without further delay, here are our over-all winners
2nd Place – What’s For Lunch, Honey?
3rd Place – My Culina Sanctuarium
The following are the category winners.
Aesthetics – zested
Originality – Cherrapeno
Host selected winner – Purplesque’s Vox
As the host, I get to pick a winner from those that did not place. There were MANY that I wanted to pick, I assure you! The one that I ended up scoring highest and which didnt place when all judge’s scores were collated together was:
I want to congratulate each of you winners and also thank each entrant for their beautiful submissions. Please keep entering the contest in future months!
The host for the April edition of DMBLGIT (which will judge photos blogged in March) is (drum roll please):
