Are you a shutterbug who loves delicious and distinct foods? Want to get your image in front of the tens of thousands of people in the Slow Food USA network? Then help us celebrate your local food treasures for a chance to have your photo appear as the cover image on the Autumn 2016 issue of Slow: An Eater’s Digest.
How to compete in the Ark of Taste Photo Contest
The featured photo will be selected by Slow Food USA’s editorial team from a set of images and media depicting an Ark of Taste Food that is submitted as a collection to the Google Cultural Institute’s gallery of Ark of Taste foods.
First, read the description of Slow Food’s collaboration with the GCI and what materials to collect in order to create a complete collection for the gallery.
Then, start shooting your photos! Locally, in Sonoma County we have the Sebastopol Gravenstein Apple and the Bodega Red Potato on the Slow Food USA Ark of Taste. The Gravenstein Presidium of Slow Food Russian River works to promote and protect farmers who nurture their apples from tree to table supported by an energetic and creative team of volunteers nicknamed the Apple Core.
When you’ve collected at least seven images showing the food, people, landscape and gastronomy of an Ark of Taste product, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
