WINNER: Feature Story: Farmer, Rancher, Fisher, Grower

Edible Idaho - Fishing for Sustainability by Guy Hand

What the judges said: “It made me hope that a lot of people would read it, learn about what the fishing industry actually looks looks like, and what it takes to go out on your own.” -- Deborah Madison, author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone.

“This exceptionally well-written story starts out with what sounds like a typical fisherman and his wife embarking on a day’s work, but it takes a surprising turn. In a twist to the usual local-food story, the reader discovers how this couple is trying to overcome economic and market forces. This piece is informative, moving, and reveals that the journey of a local food fish is not as linear and simple as one might assume.” -- Mi Ae Lipe, author of Bounty from the Box, the CSA Cookbook.

WINNER: Personal Essay

Edible Idaho - A Midwinter Daydream by Casey O'Leary

What the judges said: “Eating seasonally requires discipline, and I enjoyed the desperation of this piece that is so relatable for foodies. A fresh perspective on an old dilemma.” -- Amanda Miller, Executive Director at the Association of Food Journalists
