Recipe Photo Contest
Calling all enthusiastic home cooks and shutterbugs: Our popular recipe photo contest is back, featuring three delicious autumn recipes that will warm your body, as well as your heart and soul. Check them out below for three opportunities to win up to $1500 in cash prizes!
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 three 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 October/November contest period is 11:59 pm EST on Friday, November 28, 2014. To submit a photo, simply click on a recipe below and follow the link in the banner to the contest entry form.
