– Winning vendor to be filmed for an Eat St. segment –
Street food vendors who think their food has the chops to be featured on the hit Food Network Canada and Cooking Channel series Eat St. might soon have their chance. Until Jan. 5, food vendors across North America can upload a video showing off their cart to http://eatst.foodnetwork.ca/contest
Then, from Jan. 5 until Jan. 31, viewers will vote on their favourite vendors. The top five fan favourite carts and the grand prize winner will be announced Feb. 10, 2012.
Each of those carts will have a chance to be filmed for a four minute segment of an Eat St. Episode.
“Only the most delicious street food carts with the most colourful characters are featured on Eat St.,” says Audrey Mehler, executive producer at Paperny Entertainment. “We’re looking forward to seeing the best of the best from across North America. Let the games begin!”
To enter the contest, vendors must enter a short home-made video in the Eat St.Video Contest (http://eatst.foodnetwork.ca/contest) showing off their cart, their story and their cuisine. The entry is judged on the charisma of the vendor, the uniqueness of the cart and the quality of the food. It is not judged on the production quality of the video.
Video submissions close on Jan. 5 at 1PM Pacific Time. Then, from Jan. 5 to Jan. 31, street food lovers can vote for the vendors they would most like to see on the television show. Vendors are encouraged to use any means necessary to get votes from their loyal customers, as voters will determine the five North American fan favourites.
On Feb. 10, 2012, Paperny Entertainment and Food Network Canada will reveal which of the five fan favourite carts is chosen to win the grand prize — filming and production of an Eat St. segment. Eat St. airs Fridays at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network Canada. For more information and to enter the contest, visit http://eatst.foodnetwork.ca/contest
