” Let’s Do Lunch! Photo Contest ” Win Prizes and Feed People

How many times have you had a great lunch and figured, it looked so good, maybe you’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?

We’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.

Here’s what we’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

The juror is stellar with the editorial team of Chow.com, the online foodie mecca.
Lou Manna, famed food photographer, and the New York Times restaurant review photographer for 15 years, and James B. Wood, Director of the Photography Dept. at the Academy of Art in SF, and heavily awarded photographer in his own right.

These folks know food AND photography and we are proud to present them as our jurors.

20% of the sale of that book will go to local community food banks.

So, C’mon
Let’s do Lunch!

You can win, and help feed some people , too. Maybe let your local food banks know so they can get some entries going and help out your community. Sure, there are excellent photo prizes for the winner, too.

This is a global contest open to everyone in the world.

If you have a camera, and you eat, you are halfway there.

No matter what, when you enter, you are helping.

We look forward to seeing all of your entries and hope that you pass the word around about this one.
