Calling all foodie photographers! Starting today (May 17th) we are running a multi-phase food photography competition in partnership with the incredible Thank Goodness Foods and photographer, holistic health coach, and cookbook author, Melissa Delport.

The Prize

Our ultimate winner will get their hands on the following exciting prizes:

  • A Manfrotto Element MII tripod from Orms
  • A one-on-one practical food photography masterclass with Melissa Delport in one of the studios at the Orms Cape Town School of Photography
  • An R1 500 voucher to use on the Thank Goodness Foods online store
How to Enter

Unlike most giveaways which use a like-follow-share mechanic, we’ve dreamed up a process that empowers participants to engage with their own creative process.

Round One

  • Start Date: 17th May 2021
  • Upload your best still food photography image to Instagram with the hashtag #TGFoodPhotos and follow @thankgoodnessfoods, @ormsdirect, and @melissa__delport on Instagram.
  • Final Date for Round One Entries: 23rd May 2021
  • Judging will take place from the 24th – 25th May 2021

From these initial entries, the Orms Creatives team will select 10 finalists to proceed to the next round of the food photography competition.

Round Two

  • Each of the 10 finalists will have from the 26th to the 30th of May to collect a hamper of Thank Goodness Foods treats from their workshop valued at R350.
  • The finalists will then have until the 4th of June to photograph, edit and submit a collection of their best photos featuring the treats in the hamper.
  • The submissions will take place via email.

From these final entries, our resident expert judge Melissa Delport will select a final winner who will be announced on the 6th of June.
