Description of Premio Foods' Real Italian Tailgating with Premio Photo Contest.

Premio Foods Italian Sausage, the official provider for Italian Sausage for the NY Jets and NY Giants 2010 home games at Meadowlands Stadium, unveiled a Real Italian Tailgating with Premio online photo contest offering a $1,000 cash prize for submission of the best photo depicting the best use and enjoyment of Premio Foods Italian Sausage product, announced Marc Cinque, owner and CEO of the New Jersey-based fresh meats manufacturer. Premio Foods is the #1 seller of Italian sausage in NJ, NY, MD, PA and CT with 2009 sales of $140M.

In announcing the contest, Premio Foods owner Marc Cinque notes: “Over the years, people have asked me what the name ‘Premio’ means. It’s Italian for ‘prize’ or ‘reward’. Which is exactly what you can expect from our Italian sausage: prize-winning taste and a rewarding meal for you, your family and your friends. And a natural tie-in for our Premio Tailgating Italian Style Contest, which brings together a passionate community of football fans and Italian Sausage lovers, set in the thrilling arena of a professional football game. At Premio Foods, we have been passionate about our product, our work and our community for over 66 years. Now let’s have some fun!”

The Real Italian Tailgating with Premio photo contest was officially launched on September 9th and unveiled at NY Jets and Giants home games on September 12th and 13th. The online photo contest is open to tailgating fans both at home and at the Meadowlands Stadium at every NY Jets and NY Giants home game through the end of the 2010-11 football season. The online voting period extends from September 10, 2010 - February 14, 2011 with winners announced on February 16, 2011.

The Premio Sausage Cart and Brand Ambassadors will be on-site at every NY Jets / NY Giants Meadowlands Stadium home game to distribute contest premium items, conduct blind tasting contests and to assist tailgating fans in uploading their contest photos.
