A Feast for the Eyes

Food. Sometimes it literally is a beautiful thing. Whether it’s a picture-perfect tomato fresh off the vine or a work of art brought to your table at a gourmet restaurant—just one look can make your mouth water.

Got a favorite food photo or two? We want to see your best shots! So share your passion — and your pics — and show the world what you love about food.

You can submit your photos to our Flickr page (see details below) and tag them with “CAFood-TNC12”; and feel free to include as many details about the photo as you’d like.

Make sure to check back regularly as we'll be highlighting some of the best of your photos on our website and on our Facebook page...and the next one may be yours!

Submitting Photos for California Foodie of the Week

If you've been following The Nature Conservancy in California on Facebook, you know all about Foodie of the Week. Each week between May 1 and June 21 we'll feature a different sustainable California ingredient. At the beginning of each week, we'll ask you to submit a set of five photos that show how to make your favorite dish that features the ingredient of the week. At the end of each week, we'll pick our favorite set of photos and name the photographer our Foodie of the Week.

When submitting photos for Foodie of the Week, please keep the following in mind:

  1. Each week's ingredient will be announced on Monday. You have until midnight on Thursday of the same week to submit your sets of photos by following the Flickr upload instructions below.
  2. You can only be named Foodie of the Week once.
  3. The Foodie of the Week will be announced on The Nature Conservancy in California Facebook page each Friday from May 1 to June 21. Each Foodie of the Week's set of photos will be featured as an album on The Nature Conservancy in California Facebook page, and one of these photos will also be featured as The Nature Conservancy in California's Facebook profile photo until the next Foodie of the Week is named.
