NEW YORK, NY — O’Reilly Media has announced the winners of the Photoshop Cook-Off Contest at PhotoPlus Expo 2006. Grand Prize Winner Suzanne Pitts and ten additional winners in five categories were selected from hundreds of submissions created by Photoshop aficionados. Entrants excitedly responded to the opportunity to “cook” their digital entries using “recipes” from any of five O’Reilly Cookbooks.
“What’s so wonderful about the Cook-Off contest is that everyone’s a winner,” says Betsy Waliszewski, who organized the contest along with Cookbook’ editor Edie Freedman. “The O’Reilly recipes used to manipulate the images stirred the creative visions of photographers at all levels, from enthusiasts to seasoned professionals.”
