For the first time in Time Out history, a reader's photo graced our cover for the March 27th Food & Drink Awards issue. Courtesy of our Instagram cover contest, 36-year-old Windsor Terrace resident Elizabeth C. Mitchell saw her winning shot—the trio of mouthwatering tacos at Mission Cantina pictured above—on newsstands around New York.

But Mitchell's photo wasn't the only shot in the running. Instagram-happy New Yorkers submitted over 1,000 snaps of Food & Drink Award nominees. What submissions just missed the cut? Check out our top ten runners-up below.

And if you'd like go next-level with your phone-photography game, read up on for tips from Instagram superstar Daniel Krieger (who also shot the winners of the Food & Drink Awards).
