The Samsung #GalaxyMega #NomNomClub Food-Photo Challenge Winner is….

It was an intense 7-Day food photo challenge as a total of almost 200 photo submissions tagging @SamsungPH & @JonelUy with the hashtags #GalaxyMega #FoodPorn and #NomNomClub were sent as entries for the Samsung Galaxy Mega Food Photo Challenge.

We observed that Instagram raked in the most number of photo uploads with almost 120 photos. Facebook and Twitter followed which sum up to almost  200 in total among the different social media channels in the first week of August.

Here is a photo collage I made from the 120++ Instagram photo entries.

A Word of Thanks

We would like to thank Samsung Mobile Philippines (@SamsungPH and @SamsungMobilePH) for sponsoring this blog contest with a Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 Duos unit as prize. NomNom Club have been using the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 and has been extremely happy with the unit for almost three weeks now.

I have been shooting and uploading rich media content such as Instagram photos and Instagram videos, Facebook posts, and Twitter updates using the Mega smartphone. Add to that watching movies using the ClickPlay application – a true multimedia gadget indeed! 🙂

Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 Duos Winner

As per the choosing of the photos, it took us several days not only because of the 200 photos but because a lot of them were very good as well. After validation, there were 51 set of entries with at least 3 photos each who followed the requirements.

We were able to round it up to a few top entries including an entry which took the challenge beyond the 3 photos into a complete 7-day “Cook my own lunch” challenge by Kim. There was also an entry set of 5 photos in Instagram which was one of the top contenders with its rich color and great composition as submitted by Iana. There was even a mom-participant which featured her “Nanay Lunches” photos of healthy bento box by Lourdes.And lastly, there were Facebook Notes and status which added a story into it which made it a good read such as the one by Joy. (if only I could give away five Samsung Galaxy Mega Smartphones). Their story were so good I would even like to invite them to write for NomNom Club as contributors, What do you think? 🙂

However,  we had to select the best from the best entries and we had to choose only one. And without further delay, the winning set of photos is from Jenn Valmonte with her Facebook note entitled “Play With Food, Unleash the Creativity“.

“Play WIth Food”

You can see the three photo links from Twitter here:

Congratulations Ms. Jenniffer Valmonte for winning a box-sealed Samsung Galaxy Mega Smartphone 5.8!

All three photos had great composition, a hint of color, and played with light, producing a dramatic and impactful effect. It was more than a photograph of food, it was a story in itself that enamors your soul to know more about the image.
