Now in it’s 15 year, The Sydney Morning Heralds ‘Shoot the Chef’ photo competition is open for entries for 2013, and this year it is not just for pro’s and students, it is also open to amateur photogs.
“It doesn’t matter if you wield a high-performance professional camera or you’re just a whiz on your smartphone, we’re looking for eye-catching and creative entries of all kinds,” said Good Food Month festival director and competition judge Joanna Savill.
The other innovative change to this year’s competition is that entrants will submit their photographs through Twitter and Instagram using the #shootthechef.
“We’re excited about the much broader scope of the competition this year,” added Savill, “but it’s still all about putting the spotlight on a chef – no matter what your interpretation. Good Food Month is a celebration of every aspect of food, including photographing the people who cook it.”
There are two awards to be won both with a $2,500 cash prize. The first is a Critics’ Choice Award where judges will be looking for the best combination of skill and creative interpretation. The winner will also have their photo published by Good Food.
