Food Ninjas—Reveal Yourselves! Food Ninja Contest Open For Submissions!!

in Culinary Adventurism, Food Ninja

As I mentioned in my last post, Bella Ninja (aka, Paula of bell’alimento), Salty Ninja (aka, Linda of Salty Seattle), and I (Fuji Ninja!) have formed a dangerous Food Ninja trio to give you the opportunity of sharing your Food Ninja skills with the world!

Food Ninjas Unite!

Starting today (until October 24th, 2010 at 10pm PST), you can submit your pictures, blog posts, videos, recipes, etc. of you exhibiting true food ninja skill.  You DO NOT have to be a blogger to enter—you just have to be a Food Ninja!  You can enter a maximum of one entry in each category. Anyone who submits an entry will get to proudly display their Food Ninja status with an awesome Food Ninja badge that we will send you (available in a variety of colors).  So c’mon, come and get your ninja on with us!  This is NOT something that you want to miss out on!  Voting will take place between October 25th through the 27th, and then we will announce the winners on October 28th.  Entries will go into one of 5 categories:

  1. Ninja Recipe
  2. Ninja Photo
  3. Ninja Video
  4. Ninja Blog Post
  5. Ninja Wildcard (This can be ANYTHING! G0 crazy!)

The winner of each category will be receiving an amazing prize!  Bella Ninja, Salty Ninja, and I hand picked each prize because we believe they are all things that should be in a Food Ninja’s arsenal.  We then crossed our fingers and hoped that producers of these prizes would be willing to be prize sponsors.  Well, they must all have the true Food Ninja Spirit, because they all agreed!  You’ll be hearing more about the prizes later, but just so you know what they are:

Food Ninja Contest Prizes:

Zojirushi Zutto Neuro Fuzzy Rice Cooker

Guy Fieri Knuckle Sandwich 8-inch Chef's Knife


Marx Foods Dried Chile Sampler

Hardcover Template 5 5/8 x 8 11/16


So now, what you’ve all been waiting for:

Rules & How to enter the Food Ninja Contest:

In order to submit your entry, send an email with your photo, blog post link, video, recipe, etc. either linked or attached to [email protected] anytime between October 7th and October 24th, 2010 at 10pm PST.  You DO NOT have to be a blogger to enter.  Your email must contain the following information:

1. Your name (real or pseudonym) as you want it displayed in the Food Ninja Roundup

2. Your location (you can be as general or specific as you want . . . we just want to showcase where submissions are coming from!)

3. Which category your entry is for:

  1. Ninja Recipe
  2. Ninja Photo
  3. Ninja Video
  4. Ninja Blog Post
  5. Ninja Wildcard (This can be ANYTHING! G0 crazy!)

4. Any information relevant to your submission (links, photo attachments, etc.). If you write a blog and would like to be included on my new Food Ninja Blog List, please include the link to your blog as well!


On top of the category prizes there will be some additional opportunities to win prizes and have some fun!  I will be sharing my own Food Ninja moments during the course of the contest, hoping to inspire you if you happen to be experiencing any “Food Ninja Block.”  If you want to stay current on all of the Food Ninja news, you can follow the hashtag #foodninja on Twitter.  Make sure you follow me, Fuji Ninja @fujimama, Paula, the Bella Ninja @bellalimento, and Linda, the Salty Ninja @saltyseattle.  If you’re on Twitter, make sure you let us know who you are so that we can add you to our Food Ninja Twitter list!
