I haven’t been posting because I’ve been busy trying to pull together a few sponsors for the Food Bloggers’ Conference and finally have pulled the last big one in.
And it is great news. SBS Food has come onboard to sponsor/partner a one week photo exhibition of food and drink bloggers’ photos to kick off on Sunday March 21.
SBS joins our other sponsors The Essential Ingredient, which is providing the daytime venue and coffee roaster, cafe, cum restaurant St Ali, which is providing food, the evening meal (by chef Ben Cooper), and the space for the exhibition and kick-off cocktail party.
Even cooler are our drinks partners. We will have cocktails provided by Der Raum (with perhaps some liquid nitrogen floating around), wine by Prentice Wine, beer by the Red Hill Brewery and soft drinks and water by Daylesford and Hepburn Springs Mineral Springs Co.
This is very cool as it will help spread the word about food blogs to the broader community.
Enter your pictures
To enter simply submit your pictures to the Eat.Drink.Blog.2010 Flickr group and our judges (who are being sorted in the next few days)
DEADLINE: Midnight Sunday March 7 2010
The Guidelines and small print
1. Submissions are open to Australian and New Zealand food and drink blogs only.
2. Try and limit your submissions to half a dozen or less. (I’ve been cheeky and entered four to start things off.)
3. Each picture will be framed and the entrant will received the framed copy. At some point we will need to get hold of a high resolution copy of the pic for printing.
4. The pictures should be original works from 2009/2010, have been blogged and the copyright owned by the entrant.
5. In return for SBS Food’s support, I’ve said they can include each of the pictures in the exhibition in an online slideshow which will include a blogger profile on the SBS Food website. By entering you will be agreeing to this.
6. That’s about it. All entrants will be invited to the cocktail launch.
7. A judge cannot vote on their own work but we’d love them all to enter.
8. That’s all.
