Let’s get going and share some pictures (up to ten per post) from your cookoff on our blog! Taking a picture and sharing it allows other people to see the world through your eyes. It's not about who is in the picture or the background. It's about the memories and meanings it holds. What a great way for others to experience the fun at a chili cookoff! Be sure to caption the picture, be it winners of the cookoff, charity donations, or just something you enjoyed! And go ahead and send us information about your event before it takes place, like hotel info, directions, prize money, plea for more cooks, etc and when all is said and done, the final write-up/results of your cookoff! What fun it will be to see what’s happening at each other’s event! Send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
