All Food Photo Affair contest categories are open for interpretation. We’re looking for your creativity. For example, a “plate” could be fine china, or it could be a banana leaf, a slab of wood, etc. For our “Spicy” category, you could present a drink, a dessert, a savory dish—it’s up to you. And if you have a story that goes along with your image—all the better!
