DMBLGIT June - The winners

Would you like to win a few dollars for a bit of a shopping spree? Head here for the giveaway currently running on this blog.

Just finished watching the marathon Spain-Netherlands World cup final match. It sure was "Waka Waka" all the way for Paul the Octopus! Wonder what he'll do next now that the amazing World Cup is over.
Anyways, today is also the day I finally upload the DMBLGIT June results. I've been missing in action for a few days now - had some health problems, and then was busy enjoying the sun.

Coming to the event of June, I want to thank all the participants and indeed the judges who helped spread the word about DMBLGIT. I was happy that by the end of it, there are a few more volunteers and that'll ensure it'll go on for another few months at least! We had an over-whelming response this time around - 95 entries in all, and a lot of them from our Italian neighbours. Thanks to them, by now I know that "Fragole" means "Strawberries" and "lamponi" means raspberries..lol

Alright, below are the winners
OVERALL WINNERS
First Place - Aficionado - Green tea macarons


Second place - Cooking Your Dream - Pistachio Ice Cream


Third place shared jointly by
Un déjeuner de soleil for Fraisier with rhubarb and mascarpone


and


Below are the winners in each category
Aesthetics
Qualcosadirosso for Caprese di Fragole


Edibility
Zuccheroeviole for Alfajores


Originality
Lo spilucchino for Peas cocotte with camembert's heart


Thanks again for your participation. I had a lot of fun putting it together. This month's event is being held at Asha's@FSK blog - do visit her and send in your entries.

    But I must say something... am I the only one who thinks that the winning photo is out of focus or I have to pay a visit to my optometrist again?;)
    The rest of the winning photos are simply lovely.:)

  6. @Snjezana : Yeah it does seem out of focus, but aesthetics and composition gave it a high score from the judges I guess.
