Win a Trip to Food Photography Heaven with Japan Tourism

Even for those who work in the food photography industry – where free lunches are the par for the course – the prospect of an all-expenses-paid culinary trip to Tokyo is a metaphorical prize horse that few are willing to submit to an oral exam. If you see what we mean.

In fact, however you look at it, Japan is a foodie’s paradise. Add to that the Japanese flair for minimalist design and impeccable presentation, and the country is likely near the top of any food photographer’s list of destinations. And thanks to the UK branch of the Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO), a few lucky Brits will be traveling to Tokyo and Hokkaido to sample the best of saketo party famous in the world wagyu beef, or good slurp ramen at the Ramen Museum.

JNTO has partnered with ANA, JAL, Prince Hotels and Sake Samurai to offer some lucky winners the chance to win some of Japan’s great culinary prizes. And all you have to do is enter the sweepstakes on the JNTO website. Whether you are a seasoned food photography expert or a novice food photographer or food stylist, this is a truly extraordinary opportunity.

ANA Prize winners will travel to Japan on Japan’s only 5-star airline, All Nippon Airways, enjoying not one but two great foodie experiences: dinner at Nihonbashi Toyama, a restaurant specializing in seasonal dishes from Japan’s Toyama region; and the opportunity to sample nine types of regional ramen at the Shin-Yokohama Raumen Museum in Yokohama.

Alternatively, if you are lucky enough to win a JAL Prize, you will fly to the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido on Japan Airlines, Japan’s airline, to ski at two of Japan’s best mountain resorts: Niseko Ski Resort Grand Hirafu Resort and Rusutsu.

Sake Samurai Prize winners will be initiated into the Japanese rice wine rite with a private sake tasting. Finally, the Wagyu Prize winner will enjoy a wagyu beef meal for two at top restaurant Tokimeite.

Whatever the prize, this competition offers a great opportunity to put together a stylish portfolio of food photography. At least that’s assuming that Japan’s culinary marvels remain on your plate long enough to point the camera at them.

To participate in the competition, go to the JNTO website and enter your details by November 27, 2017, and you and a friend will soon be flying off into food photography heaven. Unfortunately, this competition is only open to UK-based entrants.

Best Food .Photography has nothing to do with JNTO, JAL, ANA, Sake Samurai, Prince Hotels or any other partner in this promotional competition. We just believe that this is something our UK readers in the UK might be interested in participating in.

Good luck to everyone who enters!
