The Gavel Rests Here

Recipes for Mohegan Succotash, Peublo Chicken and Ute Tortilla are in the pipeline. But before that, I needed to make a very important announcement. Therefore this post.


Yes, the gavel rests here. Well, one of them anyway. I am a judge for the November edition of CLICK.

CLICK is a theme-based monthly photography event started by the coolest husband-wife blogger team around, Bee and Jai of Jugalbandi. Launched in October, it was a resounding success with over 60 entries for the theme, Eggs. Every entry was unique and had a story behind it, making it more than just a photograph with a theme. Some bloggers had really huge eggs, some cooked them, and other like me, were a little cracked!

This was my entry:


It won second place in CLICK: Spectra and also won the CLICK: Concept award.


Entries are given points by a panel of judges and winners are declared in three categories: CLICK: Spectra, CLICK: Concept and CLICK: Delish. There is a fourth category, CLICK: Reader's Choice where readers can vote for 3 images of their choice. The winners for October were Sunita of Sunita's World for CLICK: Spectra, me for CLICK: Concept, Andrew of Spittoon Extra for CLICK: Delish and Suganya of Tasty Palettes for CLICK: Reader's Choice.

It's time for CLICK November 2007 and the theme is noodles.


Make sure you follow the rules and link to CLICK November 2007 from your post. And don't forget to submit your image by 20th of November, midnight, Pacific Standard Time.

The judges, besides me, are:
Meeta of What's For Lunch, Honey? and The Daily Tiffin
Cynthia of Tastes Like Home
Sunita of Sunita’s world (Winner of CLICK-October 2007)
Bee of Jugalbandi

Noodles must be the edible kind: cooked or uncooked. This kind will not do! So get clicking, send in your entries and inspire us with your creativity once again! The event is open to blogger and non-bloggers alike.

And did I mention that I am a judge?!

I picked them up from here - where the background is also white. I don't think they look strange! But then I don't know what you had in mind! :-D

Manisha congrats for winning two click awards! Enjoy the judging, this time I too will be participating though I am not a good photographer.

Someone moving back to India, but I hope she keeps posting, too! Life would be so much easier if I could just eat the photos! LOL.

Thanks, Nabeela! All those positive vibes you sent helped a great deal!

Dani, you made my sides ache! I am still laughing!! And the blog you mentioned? That's Roopa of Kitchen Aromas and she lives in the area but unfortunately we never got around to meeting. Now she's moving back to India. She has a great collection of recipes!

(You won in 2 categories, didn't you)

Hugs,

PS : Did you know ifr doens't render well on IE-7. The top portion of the banner and the animagic created art appears kinda yanked off. Thought you might wana know.

Suganya said...

Aw! What a relief.. You can sit back and enjoy. I have to brake my head now...

Manisha said...

Thanks, Mythili! I had noticed and I was hoping no-one else had! IE7 users generally don't. [Ducks! Ouch!] But then I upgraded my Firefox and it did the same thing which I knew a lot of people would notice. So I've patched it for now. Let me know if you can see the IFR Mascot's head now!

Gosh, you guys are happy to be rid of me! And no-one wants to hide it either!

Suganya, I may not be in the running but I am still a judge. You have to be very nice to me through November, you know!

Suganya said...

ooohhh... I am shaking... Madam, coffee, tea.. anything?

RP said...
