I am very proud and honored to say that I am one of the four first place winners in the first annual Food & Wine Magazine food photography contest!
They write about the contest on the Food & Wine Magazine web site.
The grand prize was a very spiffy Canon camera. Firts place winners got most excellent swag, as seen below!
The grand prize winner Jessica Thomson of Seattle, WA won with an image of "Papaya-Jalapeno Sorbet in Black and White Espresso Cups". Very lovely.
The other three runners up are:
- Linda Nihot of Astoria, Ny with "Eggs in Bombay"
- Karen Bolla of Alameda, CA with "Pears"
- Christian Remy of Brooklyn, NY with "Cooling Pomegranate Syrup"
I got three books and a lovely letter from their director of photography. These are great books filled with lots of excellent food photography. Cant wait to dive into them!
When I hit the submit button I NEVER thought it would win, I just dont WIN contests, ever. All I can say is that you can never know how these things will turn out unless you give it a chance!
Again, my thanks go out to Food & Wine for selecting my photo this year!
