Eat Drink Blog 5 – Writing Competition 2014

Update! Entry dates extended until 25th August!


We are continuing on with the tradition of the Eat Drink Blog Writing Competition this year in Brisbane, and have some great prizes lined up!

This competition is only open to Australian food and drink bloggers that meet the criteria.

This year entrants can submit an original piece of published blog writing that must be no more than 1000 words on any food related subject. It could be on a food travelling experience, a restaurant review, the headnote for a recipe, a story or article on an aspect of food that is interesting or exciting to you!

Note: If the entry features a recipe, the story supporting the recipe will be judged, not the recipe itself so the ingredients and methodology are not included in the word count.

Entries for the competition will be based on blog posts published within the last six months, up to and including the closing date, between  3 February 2014 – 15 August 2014.

All entries must be submitted via email to: [email protected] with the full name of the author, name of the blog, email address, social media ID, a link to blog post and attach a PDF copy of the text only, no images.

Please check the full set of terms and conditions before entering.

Entries must be submitted by 5pm AEST on Friday 15 August 2014.

Extended Until 5pm AEST Monday 25th August 2014!
