DMBLGIT – The Roundup

By In Blog Events
Sorry for the long delay in posting the winning photos. A double house move in the space of three weeks and a loss of internet connection is the reason.
Salivating over the entries as I have been doing, it must be said that the standard is at an all time high. There is so much talent out there that judging is getting more and more difficult. What is interesting that despite being wonderful images, savoury dishes do not tend to score that highly in comparison to something sweet and sticky so it is a delight that The Passionate Cooks entry came in third with the complementary colours producing such a vibrant image. I should warn future hosts that handling over 100 entries is tricky and time consuming; but we had a ball in deciding the winners…
