On the 16th of December, after a period of preparations, together with Slow Food Vodno , we held the award ceremony for the Wiki Loves Food photographic contest. The Wiki Loves Food photographic contest attracted significantly large attention in the public thus several media outlets reported from the competition. The competition itself went excellent resulting in 916 uploaded images from 67 registered competitors who covered 100 different traditional dishes from the Macedonian and regional cuisines. This topic, traditional cuisine, led us to the collaboration with the Slow Food organization whose members wholeheartedly helped us in the promotion and judging of the contest as well as the organization of the award ceremony which at the same time was celebration of their Terra Madre day. The event was attended by around 70 people among which the winners and the other authors of the 10 best photographs who got their images printed in large format as well as a gratitude certificate for participation in the contest.
