At some point we would like to make this a real bus tour. In fact, we have it planned. It's a lap around America, seeking out cool restaurants and their operators and employees who are passionate about food, service, their customers and this industry. These are the restaurants and restaurant operators we want to recognize and promote; blog about, Tweet about and bring attention to. But, that's phase II. Who knows, Maybe Phase III is a world tour! So, the first step is virtual. So, let's go!
What: The FohBoh Eat Across America Photo Contest
When: January 1, 2010 to December 1, 2010
Where: The United States - Virtual Bus Tour
Why: Because we can, because it's fun and because we can't afford a real tour-yet!
How: See instructions and read Contest Rules below
Who: Any FohBoh member. Please see Contest Rules below
Early FohBoh member, Adam Cox, came up with the virtual tour idea, but we never really pursued it. That was in 2008. The good news is, now there are cameras everywhere and more social web tools that make it easier than ever to socialize and promote the Eat Across America Bus Tour and your photo.
Step 1. You must be a FohBoh member and have a complete profile. Yes, that means you need a real nice photo of you on your profile. Don't be shy!
Step 2. Read the Eat Across America Photo Contest Rules below.
Step 3. Go to The Tour Bus Photo Discussion link below and download a photo of the FohBoh Bus. Print it out.
Step 4. Be creative. Then have someone take a digital picture of you holding the FohBoh bus somewhere, anywhere in the world. Cool landmarks are a plus.
Please make sure each photo submitted meets with our Contest Rules and is not digitally enhanced or inappropriate in any way.
Step 5. Email the photo to email@example.com. Upon review, we will add it to the Eat Across America Tour photo album
where votes (in the form of comments) will start.
Step 6. Socialize it. Click on your photograph(s) in the album, grab the link and share the link on facebook, MySpace, flickr, Twitter, digg, or any other social network. Get the word out to vote for you. Check back for comments!
