Recipe Photo Contest
Calling all enthusiastic home cooks and shutterbugs: our popular recipe photo contest is back! And because we know you are all busy cooking up feasts for the holidays, we have carefully selected two family recipes that you can cook up, snap a few pics, and then serve to your loved ones! Check them out below for the opportunity to win up to $1000 in cash prizes!
To participate in the contest, prepare one of the recipes below using Idaho® potatoes, snap a photograph of the final product, and upload it to our website using the entry form we’ve provided. Our favorite photo for each of the two recipes will win a $500 prize! You can submit entries for as many featured recipes as you’d like 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 December/January contest period is 11:59 pm PT on Friday, January 30, 2015. To submit a photo, simply click on a recipe below and follow the link in the banner to the contest entry form.
