Do you photograph food? Do your photographs of food get ooooohs and aaaaahs? Are you the next Kyle Dreier, Stephen Hamilton or Steve Adams of food photography? Well, do I have a food photography contest just suited for you. There are going to be ten winners, each with a $500 prize. Sounding more interesting?
The Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is now hosting a bigger and better-than-ever recipe photo contest and they are calling enthusiastic home cooks and shutterbugs!
“We are always impressed with the quality of work that comes out of our recipe photo contests, and wanted to give folks even more chances to enjoy Idaho® potatoes and show off their culinary and photography skills,” said Frank Muir, President and CEO, IPC. “Now that we’re offering more ways to win and a bigger prize incentive, we hope to see even more extraordinary spud snapshots from our Idaho® potato fanatics.”

To participate, prepare one of the recipes below using Idaho® potatoes, snap a photograph of it, and upload it to idahopotato.com using the entry form provided.
