Food in Focus:
An IACE Photography Contest at Eataly New York

The Italian American Committee on Education (IACE) and Eataly New York invite students in the Italian language program to participate in the initiative “Food in Focus,” a photography contest.

This year’s theme is : “Bringing People Together Through the Power of Food”


IACE students are encouraged to submit photos taken with a smartphone. The image should depict Italian cuisine, from simple, quality ingredients to beautiful, plated dishes.

The contest judge will be Francesco Tonelli, a renowned Italian cookbook author and food photographer.

Each student may submit up to three photos by emailing with the subject line “Food in Focus.” Students can also post their photos on Instagram with the hashtag #FoodInFocusIACE/Eataly

Each student must guarantee that the photo is his/her own: he/she who submits a photo taken from other sources will be disqualified and reported to his/her teacher for proper disciplinary actions.
Besides, photos cannot advertise any brand.

DEADLINE: May 31, 2017
Students may be between the ages of 6 and 18 years.

The top 10 photos will be printed and shown in an exhibition at Eataly. The top three photos will be awarded with these prizes:

• Dinner for four people at Eataly’s fine-dining restaurant, Manzo
• Tasting tour of Eataly led by a brand ambassador for four people
