The Vegit Contest

Here’s one more contest for all those who have registered to attend the Indian Bloggers Meet at Bangalore. I know it’s a little late in the day for a contest to be announced but this contest is slightly different from the others that have been running here so far.

For one thing, you don’t have to cook or photograph or even post anything on your blog. All you have to do is answer the 13 questions below, and you have more than a week to do so, so you can even attend the Meet, get back home and then sit down to answer these questions.

What you need to do to participate in the contest :

1)  Answer all the 13 questions in the Vegit Contest below. You can go to their website and scroll through and you should be able to find the answers to the Vegit related questions.

2)  Copy the 13 questions into a Word doc., and then answer them.

3)  Send your answers as an attachment in a mail mentioning your name and link to your food blog, to vegitforbloggers[AT]gmail[DOT]com

4)  Vegit Foods will choose three winners through a lucky draw from the submissions with all 13 answers correct.

5)  The contest opens from today the 31st July and closes at 10pm on the 10th July, 2014. This contest is open only to the registered participants of the Indian Food Bloggers Meet.

6)  The winners will be announced by Vegit Foods and the gift hampers will be shipped by them directly to the winners.

#IFBM2014 - Use the hashtag

(pardon the all caps, that's just our excitement talking)

What's an event without a hashtag, right??

The hashtag for the first Indian Food Bloggers' Meet is #IFBM2014 
In case you were wondering, is not case sensitive, so #ifbm2014 will work just fine too.

What do I do with this hashtag?
Don't forget to use this in ALL your Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest updates around the event (pre-event, during the event, and post the event). You can post whatever update you choose to and just make sure #IFBM2014 features somewhere in that tweet / update.

What do I share?
Share your pics, your experiences, your little snippets from each session, your selfies with fellow bloggers and of course, the wow things you'll find in your goodie bag, the list is quite endless.

Share, share and share more on whatever social media platforms you are on. After all we want to make enough noise about our first all India Food Bloggers' Meet :)

So signing off for now, and we cannot wait to see you all on Friday morning at the #IFBM2014!!
