The voting among our judges was very close. We evaluated the teaching style and recipes of the contestants, using 24 different judging criteria. That amounted to only 80% of the total points, so the People's Choice online voting also weighed heavily in determining both the People's Choice Winner and the Grand Prize and Runner-up Winners.
And thanks to everyone who voted for your favorite video, two lucky (and determined) raw food chefs have earned their day in the spotlight! Even if they were not one of the three top prize winners, each of our contestants may have been viewed by the 5,000 people who voted in the contest. Congratulations to each of you for sharing your talents and your recipes with such a large audience.
Every one of you is a winner!
