Enter Our Recipe Photo Contest
Calling all enthusiastic home cooks and shutterbugs: Our recipe photo contest is bigger than ever, with up to $5,000 in cash prizes, 10 recipes and 10 opportunities to win!
The Idaho® potato harvest is in full swing and this month’s featured recipes are some of the tastiest ways to celebrate the season while enjoying the natural goodness of Idaho® potatoes. We invite you to whip up a delicious and nutritious after-school snack for your kids or prepare an easy and nutritious weekday lunch or dinner using one of these featured recipes.
To participate in the contest, prepare one of the recipes below using Idaho® potatoes, snap a photograph of it, and upload it to our website using the entry form we’ve provided. Our favorite photo for each of the 10 recipes will win a $500 prize! You can submit entries for as many featured recipes as you want and have the opportunity to win multiple times. All photo submissions are judged based on overall appeal, quality of composition and prominence of the potatoes in the prepared dish.
Here are some quick tips to help you create a great photograph:
- Lighting: Bright, natural light works best. If possible, set your dish next to a sunny window and turn off the flash setting before you snap the photo.
- Keep it clean: Wipe the edges of the plate and the space around the food – messy smudges aren’t appealing!
- Plating: Decorative plates and serving dishes can add to the ambiance of the photo, as long as it doesn’t clash. Let the food be the star!
The deadline to enter your photo submissions for the July/August contest period is 11:59 pm PT on October 29, 2013. To enter, simply click on a recipe below and follow the link in the banner to the contest entry form.
