Free Trip? Pic Your Trip Contest

I recently received this in my email and thought I’d share it with you. If you love to travel as much as I do, get your camera out and start snapping!


Take a recipe photo, Win a ,500 trip. Village Harvest invites you to PicYourTrip.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA–April 18, 2013.   One mouthwatering photo could be your ticket for world travel to Italy, Peru, Thailand, China or India. Simply submit photos of your favorite rice dish to PicYourTrip, a contest sponsored by Village Harvest, importers of single-sourced rice and grains from around the globe.

Send in as many photos as you want between April 15-May 30th.  Acclaimed chef and world traveler Joanne Weir will lead a panel of judges to select the finalists. The finalists’ photos will be posted to a Facebook PicYourTrip gallery and the grand prize winner will be chosen by popular vote. Voting will run from June 6-15.  The Grand Prize winner will receive a trip for two (valued at up to $7,500) to any country where Village Harvest sources grains.

And rest assured that means plenty of places from which to “pic”. From the Po River Valley in Italy to the mountains of Peru, Village Harvest travels the globe to offer authentically-sourced organic and conventional, brown and white varieties of Jasmine, Basmati and Arborio Rice, as well as popular whole grains like Quinoa and Farro.

Since 1892, Village Harvest’s parent company Otis McAllister has been setting the standard of quality for grains and other products with the highest level of authenticity, taste and nutrition in mind. From these principles were born their highest ideal of rice and grains: Village Harvest. In addition to their authentic line, they also offer precooked whole grain medleys in the freezer section.
