Congratulations to Andra Smith
, the winner of our 2014 Spring Photo Contest! Smith's picture of a tasty salad from Main Street favorite Root Cafe
was the biggest vote-getter in our recent Facebook voting — quite a feat, since we had some really fantastic photographs submitted.
Thanks again to South on Main
and Loblolly Creamery
, who donated prizes for this contest — I couldn't have done it without them. And thanks to everyone who submitted a photo — I was very impressed with all of them, and found it very tough to narrow things down to only six finalists. You obviously love food, Arkansas, and it shows.
Didn't get a chance to enter this time around? Bummed your picture wasn't the prize-winner? Well don't fret: I'll be running another contest toward the end of April, and I've selected two new judges: Kat Robinson
, author of Arkansas Pie
and Classic Eateries of the Ozarks and River Valley
(and, of course, former Eat Arkansas
and current Tie Dye Travels
wordsmith) and Thanh Rasico
, author of the Red Kitchen Recipes
food blog. These ladies know food, and they know good photography, so I'm looking forward to our next contest — plus, we've got some pretty great prizes from Hillcrest Artisan Meats
for our next winner.
Stay tuned for our next contest, and congratulations once again to Andra Smith!
