Writing Competition 2014 Terms and Conditions

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 head-note for a recipe, a story or article on an aspect of food that interests, excites or frustrates 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.

1. Your full name

2. Your email address

3. Name of your blog and website address
