Why is mint chocolate chip ice cream so often green?  We know that the essential oils used to produce the mint flavor certainly doesn’t lend the color.  Is it the manufacturer’s way of grabbing the attention of someone already searching for the flavor?  Does green food say “mint” to you?  Green foods say “grassy” or “produce” to me.  There is no denying that food imagery helps determine choice, and this next Call drives home that point precisely.  Can’t wait to see your entries…

Check out this Call for Entries from the Darkroom Gallery (Essex Junction, VT) for Feast. The entry fee at Darkroom is always low ($24), and they will provide free matting & framing if you work in their standard sizes. Take a look…

*Editor’s Note: If you enter, please make sure to let them know that you found the Call on We’ve got a great history with them…including Best of Show!  I have such a soft spot for this gallery, and considering the theme, I really want to see one of MY BELOVED FOODIE ARTISTS take Best of Show…and all the other spots as well.  Make me proud…

Work from Juror Matt Armendariz!CALL for ENTRIES:


Feast your eyes & dig in. The taste of food photography.

From farm to table; the harvesting, preparing and plating of culinary masterpieces.  Food, we eat it to survive.  Yet if grown and prepared with intention, these are the dishes we savor.

Cooking can be a lot like taking a great photograph.  Both lend themselves to fearless experimentation, adaptation and, ultimately, the creation of something awe-inspiring.

Photography capturing this process is something that all walks of life can connect to and be stirred by.  The act of breaking bread with one another is deeply ingrained in our many traditions and ancestry.

ELIGIBILITY: Entrants must be at least 18 years old. If younger, you must have a legal guardian make the submission for you.
