How creepy is it that we’re in February already? I can account for January but I honestly have no idea where the first two weeks of this month has gone. One good thing about this though, is that it means we’re getting even closer to Taste Of Sydney 2010!
Long time readers may recall last year’s events, if not, feel free to read about the very exciting launch event, my giveaway competition and the post-event review.
So yes, it is that time of the year again, where we’ve worked off the Christmas fat and are ready to celebrate the best of what Sydney’s top restaurants have to offer. The Taste events worldwide really are, the ultimate foodie festival!

Taste Of Sydney 2010 - WIN free double entry passes on JENIUS food blog - giveaway competition

Because the event is quite a bit of fun (well, how often do you get to choose and pick how many desserts make up your custom degustation menu or which restaurants they come from?), I decided to spice up this giveaway.
Instead of answering a standard 25 words or less competition question, to win one of three double passes to Taste Of Sydney 2010 (valued at $55), all you have to do is take a photo of me taking a photo!
And here’s the cut-out you will need to print out. Simply click on the below image to download the A4 cut-out.

  1. Download and print the cutout of me holding my camera (you can print in black & white or colour)

  3. Upload the photo anywhere, e.g. to your own server, flickr, twitpic, photobucket, etc
  4. Add a comment below with a link to your photo
  5. Three of the most creative entries will win a double pass (valued at $55) each

I’ve even put together an example of what an entry could look like:
