Thanksgiving Photo Challenge

November 26, 2009 • 11 Comments


Thanksgiving may be the holiday that most celebrates home cooks, and we'd love to see how you pull it all together! So, we present the Thanksgiving Photo Challenge. To participate, tell the story of your Thanksgiving through pictures of the experience. They can be of anything -- the food, the people, the table, the details. Choose your 10 best (include captions if you'd like), and send them to [email protected] by 6PM EST on Sunday, November 29. We'll look through them all, choose our three favorite collections, and post them as slideshows to the site. We'll then open up the comments for votes on everyone's favorite, and the winner will receive a food52 tote bag. We can't wait to see your Thanksgivings!

*Before submitting photos, be sure to tell your friends and family that they may appear in your slideshow.
