Sydney, 15th September: ninemsn today launched a nationwide search for a food blogger, calling for Australians with a flair for writing and a passion for all things gastronomic to enter. Bloggers will have the chance to win cash and a 4-month contract writing for new culinary site, ninemsn Food, launching next month. http://recipefinder.ninemsn.com.au/bloggercomp/
As the voice of ninemsn’s new Food site the winner will have the opportunity to share recipe ideas, crafty kitchen tips as well as their opinions, insights and food experiences with the nation. In addition to a paid contract to write a weekly blog for the site, the winner will also win a cash prize of $5000 and be flown to Melbourne with a guest for the official launch of the new site.
“While Australians love entertaining, they have little time to plan and are always looking for inspiration for meals. Our audience is also growing in aptitude for blogging, social networking and sharing content,” said ninemsn’s Head of Lifestyle Rebecca Haagsma.
“We are looking for someone who is a talented and engaging writer with a genuine passion and flair for food and a wide culinary knowledge. Our resident food blogger will be presented with a fantastic opportunity to share their unique take on the culinary world with ninemsn’s monthly audience of 9.9 million people, in turn, building their own profile.”
Established and aspiring bloggers, foodies and home chefs alike, can enter to become ninemsn’s Food blogger from today by submitting two 250-500 word pieces of writing on any food topic at http://recipefinder.ninemsn.com.au/bloggercomp/
An expert panel has been assembled to judge entries on the use of original voice, useful advice and the ability to connect to a wide audience. Entries close on October 12.
The winner will be announced in October, in time for the launch of ninemsn’s rich new one-stop-shop food destination to fill your senses and inspire your taste buds.
