First up today I want to share with you a call for entries:
1000 Food Styling Ideas
Image selections by Eater Chicago editor, Ari Bendersky
Rockport Publishers will be celebrating the most beautifully styled food in their new book, 1000 Food Styling Ideas. Food preparation is an art form and we'd like to see your creations published in this full-color, 320-page book slated for publication in fall 2013.
Any image of a food or drink item photographed within the last two years is eligible. Photos that have been published in other Rockport books are not eligible. There is no entry fee and, because of that, we cannot provide free copies of the book to those whose work is chosen. However, we do offer a 50% discount on copies of the book for contributors whose work is chosen.
Please send digital submissions. (Click here for submission details.) There is no entry fee and you may submit as many entries as you like, but be sure to complete a separate form for each entry. The information you provide will be used in a caption to accompany your submission should it be selected, so write legibly, be as complete as possible, and double check all spelling. Incomplete or illegible forms will be disqualified.
Submit your entry by October 1, 2012.
Please complete and upload a Grant of Rights form for each project entered. Submissions will not be considered if unaccompanied by Grant of Rights forms.
