Salon's coffee art contest: Our daily shots!

When we kicked off our little latte art contest last week, we thought it’d be fun … but we had no idea how many responses we’d be getting! So, to keep inspiring great shots, pours and pictures, we’re going to run one of our favorites each day until the deadline of April 6. Fun fun! And keep them coming!

Today: From the barista himself, Jonathan Pascual of Empire State South in Atlanta, GA, Snoopy!

To enter your own …

Snap some pictures of your favorite baristas’ latte art skills and send them to us. We’ll pick our favorite shots, and the top five entries will win fabulous prizes from Bodum, makers of super sweet, design-y coffee gear.

Four winners will get a set of Canteen insulated glasses (made of lovely-to-hold, super-light borosilicate glass – no, I’m not shilling; I just date an architect who gets really excited about cool materials). One super-extra winner will get the Canteen glasses and a classic Chambord French press. And, if you’d be so kind, please go and “Like” Bodum’s Facebook page. Yes, I am shilling now, but they’re kind enough to hand out some sweet prizes for our goofy little contest, so why not?

How to enter:



Take a picture — or several, or many — of latte art, and email it to <strong>coffee@salon.com. Please include the name of the coffee shop, date, and time you took the picture, and, if you’d like, the name of the barista who created the art. (Don’t you like to see people recognized for their work?)

Photos should be 400×600 minimum size, 72 dpi, but bigger is better. Please put “Foaming at the mouth” as the subject line of the email. And please know that by sending these photos in, you’re agreeing to give us permission to publish them on Salon.

All entries must be received by 1pm, Eastern time, Wednesday, April 6th, 2011. Winners will be announced Monday, April 11th.
