Awards

Each year, the Southern Foodways Alliance celebrates men and women whose lifework enriches Southern food culture. Seven SFA awards and honors recognize these cultural standard bearers.

2011 John Egerton Prize Winner: Phil Blank


In 2011, Phil Blank won the John Egerton Prize. Blank lives and works in Hillsborough, North Carolina, as a librarian and illustrator. He is fascinated by the stories of the south in all their historical richness. His work celebrates and explores foodways, music, class, and race struggles in the South. He is currently working on an illustrated sketchbook about food and culture along with his wife, April McGreger.
