The Winners of Cook, Snap & Win!

Throughout January, we ran a competition on Instagram entitled Cook, Snap & Win. And we had some amazing entries!

The criteria to enter was simple: select a recipe from Veganuary.com/recipes, cook it, take a picture of it (snap!) and tag us on Instagram with the hashtag #CookSnapWin.

The prizes up for grabs are sensational! Three bundle prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, made up of  fabulous contributions from the following supporter companies…

  • Nakd Wholefoods
  • Indigo Herbs
  • Ten Acre
  • The Vegan Kind
  • Booja-Booja
  • Fry’s Family Foods
  • CoYo
  • Tofurky (USA winners only)
  • Unicorn Goods (USA winners only)

We have been blown away by the quality of the entries! So much so, that we’ve created a highly commended category in addition to awarding 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. To those of you in this new category, we’ll be getting in touch within the next fortnight with a personal note of thanks.

OK, now the important stuff…

Who won and how did we pick them?

Due to the outstanding number and quality of the entries, we considered the following when selecting the winners:

  • Whether the entry was from Veganuary.com
  • The level of difficulty and effort
  • The quality of the photograph
  • And whether there was anything else to take into account…

And here’s what we decided!

@aartik1‘s entry was stand out from the moment it popped up on our Instagram feed! The restaurant-style presentation, the crystal-clear photo, and the fact that it is an almost picture-perfect replica of the recipe on Veganuary.com. We were unanimous in our decision. Huge congratulations @aartik1 on submitting such a delicious and well-crafted entry.
