The four top-scoring photos (reduced size, one cropped) are highlighted below.

Kathy Patalsky of New York for “Summon the Wine …” (aka Figs and Cheese)

RUNNERS-UP: (two-way tie)

Kathy receives our grand prize: a Cadco Electric Cooktop Buffet Induction Range; runners up will each receive a Kintrex Infrared Thermometer, while fourth and fifth place winners will each receive a Microplane Grater/Zester. These kitchen gadgets, amongst our chef’s favorites, were featured recently in this video blog.

Congratulations to Kathy, Ray, Lori, Tarik and Phil. A big thank you to everyone who entered and a special thank you to our panel of judges, including photographers Matt Armendariz and Damon Mattson.

Congratatulations to the winners. This is an interesting set of photos. I am sure judging must be tough.


Thanks for your comment. It was indeed difficult. I’m in awe of how large and passionate the food photography movement is.
