During the holidays we had to think about food. So with the company of Essen I A Taste Magazine, we have launched a delicious Competition just in order to awake your pupils' taste.

We never expected this success. Browsing your photos has filled our heart with joy, not to mention the mouth! It’s because of you guys that our stomach was always full of delicacies from all over the world.
By watching all your submissions, we have felt the burden of judging and determining the winners. For that, Essen asked the help of a jury of professional photographers to which it was asked to choose in accordance with these rules:

Here we go with their respective awards …

FIRST PLACE La Sardina Möbius

SECOND PLACE Portafoto Pattern Edition – Möbius

THIRD PLACE Portafoto Pattern Edition – Möbius

FOURTH PLACE “10 Piggies”


As promised Essen will devote for the winners a brief interview to be included at a later time in their magazine, so for those who came up on this podium expect to be contacted. .

This Competition has satisfied us from all points of view. We apologize if we had take longer then the expected to determine the winners but the ’wait was only at the expense of the result, we wanted to dedicate the time necessary to give full value to your shots.

    @hanibale : Does your La Sardina lens have not open when you press the shutter button? Because my La Sardina's prize also not work well (I lost one of my empty Fuji negative film, lucky me not put my slide film there =) But when I touch the button above the lens box inside the camera, the lens can open. But still it's not work logically if I press the shutter button =(
