DMBLGIT February 2012 is still in progress and I am still waiting for your stunning food photos until 20th of this month according to your local time. The gallery is up now and will be updated as I received your entry. And as I promised you here, let me introduce you the panel of judges who will help me in reviewing your food photos and scoring them based on their expertise in food photography.

Here they are in alphabetical order:

Dwiana Porter is now working her dream job as a photographer in Erie PA, USA. Though at the moment she is doing portrait and wedding photography more, but her love with food photography will never end as you can see in her new foodblog called Dwidlebug.

She started her foodblog in 2007 until 2009 and during that period she had won several food photography contests like DMBLGIT and Click. She is one my favorite Indonesian foodie blogger that always amaze me with her skill in food photography. She was one of the judge on DMBLGIT I hosted 3 years ago, and she did a very good job in reviewing the entries. I'm sure that she will give her best too this time.
