Dear Seattle Food Bloggers
I would like to invite you to participate in a special contest.
What’s your Foodportunity?
We want you to answer this question in a blog post, a photo or a video. Be creative. We just really want to hear your story. What has Foodportunity meant to you? What does Foodportunity mean to you? Was Foodportunity the place where you came out of your shell? Is it where you get to eat lots of food and live to tell? Even if you haven’t been to one of the Foodportunity events yet, you can tell your story of what you would like your Foodportunity to look like. Is a Foodportunity, the mere collaboration of your favorite foods? It doesn’t have to be related to the event, just what does an opportunity in food look like to you? Be sure to use the tag #foodprt and @foodportunityse when you share it.
1) Your own opportunity to showcase your blog or website at Foodportunity. We will have a high table for you alongside Aran Goyoaga of Cannelle et Vanille, Brian McCracken and Dana Tough, the Chefs and Owners of Spur, Tavern Law and the Coterie Room. You will be showcasing in the room with local authors like Jill Lightner of Edible Seattle Cookbook, Leora Bloom of Washington Artisans Cookbook and Judith Dern of the Food and Cooking of Scandinavia.
This is a huge marketing opportunity. You will be able to introduce people to your blog and share what you do in front of a large targeted foodie audience.
2) You will also receive a phone consultation to help you market your blog with ideas, tips and more.
3 Cookbooks : a signed copy of Aran Goyoaga‘s new book, Small Plates and Sweet Treats: My Family’s Journey to Gluten-Free Cooking, Washington Food Artisans by Leora Bloom (a signed copy) and Desserts in Jars by Shaina Olmanson. (The winner will have to pick these up at the event or somewhere in the city).
Third Price: TBD but something for food Lover’s for sure!
(Check in as we will be adding prizes!)
The Details: The deadline for Submission is October 11, 2012. A panel of local food bloggers will be judging the entries based on 3 topics 1) Creativity 2) Food 3) Opportunity. The Judges are three popular and successful Seattle bloggers Linda Miller Nicholson of Saltyseattle.com, Ronald Holden of www.Cornichon.org and Amy Pennington of gogogreengarden.
That’s it. Go crazy. Have fun. Make a video. Make a recipe. Write a blog post. Please be sure to send it to us and we will tweet it out, share and spread the love. Use our hashtag #foodprt and please include details about the event so people can check it out. Tickets can be found at Brown Paper Tickets or more information about restaurants and companies at Foodportunity.com.
