That's right, Orlando - this is your lucky day! You have found a great place to learn new recipes, ask advice, make new friends and share your skills with others. Welcome.

Welcome to DC, Orlando!

Since you're asking this question in the Contest Forum I assume the websites and information you are looking for are contest related.

Probably one of the best contest websites is Cooking Contest Central ... they do charge an annual $25 fee for full access to all info - but visit their site and on the home page scroll down and click on "About Or Listings" to see what they have and where they get their information, then click on the "Visitor Welcome !!" link at the top left-hand of the page. They have some essential basic tips that are free, and the "Ongoing Contests" (Monthly, Quarterly, Ongoing) are also free. These are not the big money contests - but a place to get your feet wet. The list of major big money contests you have to pay to access.

If you want to ferret out your own info on the big contests, and some other contest sites - Google on Recipe Contests, Cooking Contests or Food Contests for some other sites to check out.

Hope this is along the lines of what you were asking for.

This is my question too!!

Hi, Orlando... you have asked the question that has just brought me to DC. I to did the web serch and found this sit and the two below that seem to provide detailed list. One site gives 2008 contests that have ended. I googled some and found the 2009 info for the upcoming contest.

I have not entered any yet, but will soon.

Kevin

I am a new member so the site would not let me post the links. Any one can email me for the links or google the following to get the links

I'm new here, but I did find a good article about increasing your chances in winning - would that help? I can't post the link since I haven't posted 20 times yet, but I'll check back and post the link as soon as I'm allowed

I've also found that if you use a news reader to get your RSS feeds, you can have their web crawler grab that info for you. I have mine (I use google's reader) set to "recipe contests" and each day I get links to blogs and newspaper posts about contests. These links don't necessarily list new contests, but I've learned a lot from reading the blogs of avid food contest contestants and I have learned of many contests.
