Winning photo!

I recently found out that my photo of the best chocolate truffles in Melbourne was the winner of the aesthetics section of Does My Blog Look Good In This? photo competition this month! I'm stoked! Each month I've been entering, with my favourite monthly photo, only to get to 3rd place or be outvoted. But now, I get a gong - yay! (ok - I shared the prize with another great photo of chocolate truffles!) Thanks to Cathy, Derrick, Alberto, Keiko and Barrett.
I took this photo laying on my bed (what better place to eat chocolate truffles??), and yes, the colour of the flower was the exact same shade of my bed sheet, which was a great coincidence.
I believe I'm supposed to get some little html badge to put on my sidebar :-) ; does anyone have any details about this?
If you want to see my previous entries for the photo competition here they are:
February: Caramel Cupcakes (3rd place)
March: Orange Jelly with Lemon and Cardamom (3rd place)
April: Passionfruit Banana Cupcakes (my fave, but no place)

Congratulations to Clement for taking out the overall title this month. And you must go over to see The Confabulist's very original photo!!!


  • Congratulations Niki. It is a beautiful picture and a well deserved win. Funny, I noticed you said you had been entering each month. Does it mean we have to send them a message and enter a photo? I assumed they went around looking for the best pictures. And do they have a due date?

    I have slowly learning about all these contests. I sometimes check IMBB but never saw a notice for "Does My Blog Look Good In This?".

  • Hi Ana - thank you! Yes, the deal is that you submit your own photo by the due date set each month. I agree that it isn't very easy to find information about the various competitions, particularly this food photo one, but if you go to the IMBB site, the top story at the moment should be the one about DMBLGIT (goodness!), which should include links to instructions and rules etc. I think the competition is getting over a state of flux at the moment, moving from a popularity vote, to appointing judges each month.

  • Oh well done, that's wonderful! Did you enter the chicken with the can up it's bum dish in the competition at all? ;)

  • Hi Niki...good God, I've been trying to post a comment for days! Sometimes Blogger just doesn't want to cooperate, I guess;-)

    Congrats, congrats, congrats on your win! I've been on holiday for the last five weeks- sorry it's taken me so long to drop you a line. Your shot is beautiful...the colours look just gorgeous...well done!

  • Sigrid - Congratulations! Yours is a really fabulous photo. I wish I could have tasted those truffles!

  • moira - thank you! I'm glad you're back too; I was hoping you hadn't disappeared from the food-blogging planet.
    AG - Yes, funky bed sheets aren't they! Not my usual style, but with a white doona, it creates a nice look.

  • What a good chocolate truffles, I would like to eat these as dessert, do these chocolates have Australian origin???
