Sarah Wilson chooses winners of Phase 3 of the 'Food Glorious Food' Assignment

25 September, 2012 | My Nikon Life | Comments


For this assignment, we asked our entrants for their best mouth-watering story, told in both words and pictures, about a great food experience they have had.

It could have been anything from a visit to a memorable bar or restaurant, a meal created and styled at home, a food blog entry, or even an account of a memorable food-related experience.

Leading the judging panel for Phase 3 was Sarah Wilson. Sarah is an Australian media personality, journalist and blogger with an integrated voice across television, radio, magazines, newspapers and online. Her career started as a restaurant reviewer in News Ltd’s Sunday Magazine. She’s the former editor of Cosmopolitan magazine and was the host of the first series of MasterChef Australia, the highest rating show in Australian TV history. Her latest foodie program, Eat Yourself Sexy, produced for Foxtel’s Lifestyle YOU, is currently screening in 35 countries around the world. You can read more here.

The entries were judged on how the images captured the unique essence of the experience and how the words evoked a feeling of being ‘there’ sharing the moment.

After many happy hours spent reviewing over 90 crave-worthy entries, we’re pleased to announce the following four winners of the ‘Food Glorious Food’ assignment:

Our four lucky winners have won:

  • A brand new COOLPIX P310, to capture all their future food experiences. Learn more about the P310 by heading to the P310 gear page.
  • Dinner for two at an establishment of our choice in their nearest capital city
  • The winners’ reviews will be printed in the next edition of My Nikon Life Magazine

Winner of the ‘Food Glorious Food’ Assignment – ‘Kuob’


Sarah Wilson’s Comment: “A great family snap with a difference. The colour makes this photo and sometimes “chasing” colour is a skill.”

Winner of the ‘Food Glorious Food’ Assignment – ‘Flee1907’


Sarah Wilson’s Comment: “A great angle and lighting. Quite often it’s tempting to shoot from above. This angle and propping is lovely on this one.”

Winner of the ‘Food Glorious Food’ Assignment – ‘Tashie’


Sarah Wilson’s Comment: “I love the way this one captures “a moment”, a pause. It’s very much a food moment – so much about food is sharing information, getting ideas through and, yes, flirting.”
