Canandaigua, NY (PRWEB) May 20, 2014
Just in time for National Tourism Week, everyone from culinary connoisseurs to the pickiest palates is invited to wine, dine and Instagram their way to vacations in Naples, New York, and Naples, Italy, as part of Finger Lakes Visitors Connection’s (FLVC) new #FLXperience Foodie Revolution Contest. Using the hashtag #FLXperience, participants are simply required to post their best Finger Lakes foodie experience photos to Instagram or the blog at http://www.FLXperience.com. A suggested list of more than 100 can’t-miss stops for Finger Lakes foodies is also posted on the site.
“We wanted to create a program that encourages locals and visitors to experience all of the delectable, delightful, unique opportunities that a visit to the Finger Lakes region can offer,” FLVC President Valerie Knoblauch said. “Instagram is the perfect vehicle for contest participants to capture and share the moments they consider beautiful.”
Prizes, such as overnight stays, New York Wine & Culinary Center (NYWCC) cooking classes, an iPad mini and restaurant gift certificates, will be awarded monthly for highly shared content, all-star participants and just plain gorgeous photos. In November, top participants will be invited to a celebration at the NYWCC where judges from FLVC will announce which Finger Lakes foodie posted the best content throughout the contest. The lucky gourmet will win vacations in Naples, New York, and Naples, Italy – two of the world’s top food and wine destinations. Official rules and contest regulations, as well as prize details, are available at http://www.FLXperience.com.
