Food Photography Contest Finalists

Well, we’re bleary-eyed, but we sifted through all the entries over and over again to pick the 10 finalists for our first Leite’s Culinaria Food Photography Contest. And what finalists they are. Some are bloggers, others are food lovers, still others are photography aficionados. But in all cases, the images they took are arresting.

While flipping through the photos a few facts became clear: 1.) More than 90 percent of the images were of desserts. So, apparently, there are a lot of sweet tooths out there.  2.) Entrants weren’t interested in entering just once, but rather several times. As one photographer wrote, “Once the camera started clicking, it was hard to stop.” 3.) Images came in from countries all over the globe, including France, Australia, Canada, and Italy—making it a truly international contest.

Starting today, our esteemed panel of judges, Aran Goyoaga of Cannelle et Vanille, Ben Fink, Erika Oliveira, former art director of Gourmet, and Karen Mordechai of Sunday Suppers will evaluate each of these images to name the first, second, and third place winners. But you get to vote for the People’s Choice Award. Pick the image you like the most and vote below! You can vote only one time per e-mail address. Check back here on August 30th for the winners.

To all the entrants, thank you. And to all the finalists, congratulations and good luck!–LC Editors and Staff
