How many times have you had a great lunch and figured, it looked so good, maybe youâ€™d like to share a photo of that.
Or perhaps the meal had a certain importance because of where you were or who you were with?
We want to see those photos. And perhaps help you get published. And help feed some people.
Are you with us?
Weâ€™re launching a photo contest, right now, called “Let’s Do Lunch” where you can win prizes and help feed some people at the same time.
You see, 20% of your entry fee will be donated to a community food bank, local to the Grand prize winner..
And we have some amazing sponsors and prizes for you to win: ThinkTank Photo camera bags, Adobe software, NAPP Training videos, Blurb.co custom books, and lots more we’ll reveal as the contest progresses.
There will be a Grand Prize Winner, (4) 1st place winners, 1 in each category, Peoples Choice award, and a Student prize ( and students pay less to enter. we know you have less dough.)
Along with the prizes, each winner, plus a selection of honorable mentions will be published in a book, 20% of the sale of that book will go to food banks.
Hereâ€™s what weâ€™re looking for:
Picture + Words:
*Document your lunch with a photo, and a few sentences, sharing what the experience was about.
*Upload your photos on the contest site.
Let’s Do Lunch!
Enter as many times as you like. The more the merrier!
The contest has 4 categories, and there are sample images on the site.
* Friends and Family – meals on a more personal level.
* Down to Business – lunch with a purpose
* Street – delicacies only available on the boulevard
* Solo – meals on your own (desk/ park/kitchen /auto, etc.)
If you are on Facebook, we have been uploading a bunch of lunch photos, you can check out. here is a link: Lunch
