How to find a Recipe Contest.

Earlier this week, we posted and article on How to Make Money with Cookbook Contests.

We’ve got a lot of questions on how to find the best recipe contests to enter. The answer is like almost everything else these days – the Internet.

Here is a list of some websites and newsletters you might want to consider if you are interested in finding fun recipe contests on an ongoing basis.

Contest Cook – One of my favorite sites for recipe contest data. This site provides a easy to read list on the top of the page and the basic info of each contest below.

FuseLabs Recipe Contest – This site brings together newspaper articles from multiple sources all related to cookbook contests.

Cooking Contest Central – This is most likely the most extensive collection of recipe contests out here. A subscription is $25 a year, but if you’re serious about winning cooking contests, this is a great place to start.

Pillsbury Bake-off – For 47 years Pillsbury has been the mother of all recipe contests. Grand Prize is $1,000,000.
