DMBLGIT June 07 Edition: And the Winners Are… — Et les gagnants sont…

You waited patiently, now here come the results to the DMBLGIT June 2007 Edition!

There were three main categories: Edibility, Originality and Aesthetics, an Overall Winner Category, and a total of 116 entries. We were 6 people to judge (Matt, Aun, Jules, Stretch, Fred and myself). I would like to extend a special thanks to my great team of judges, for the effort and time spent scoring every one of these great pictures. Merci ! You did a great job!

And so, because there were so many entries, I thought that instead of only giving out the first three winners, I would also include the list of the Ten Leading Pictures. A big thank you, merci, to all of you for participating.
