Review and Additional Information

OBJECTIVE: The Can Manufacturers Institute (“CMI”) is looking for people to submit an original recipe for a dish using canned food as an ingredient in the recipe.

(Submission of Recipe): After registering, type your recipe** for a dish (be it an entrée, appetizer, dessert, side dish, hors d’oeuvre or other) in the specified text box portion of the entry form. Entrant will be asked to give a title of their recipe, provide ingredients & measurements and give directions on how to make the recipe (directions on how to make your recipe must not exceed 300 words). Entrant MUST include (1) canned good item as an ingredient in their recipe (you are encouraged to use the canned good item creatively within your recipe).

All ingredients included in recipe must be readily available at a grocery store/supermarket.

**Recipe must not include illicit substances of any kind.

Step 3 (Submission of Photo): Upload (1) photo of yourself with your dish as prepared by following the directions of the recipe submitted as per Step 2 above. Your dish must be placed on a well-lit kitchen/dining room table with you standing behind it. The photo of
you and your dish will be evaluated as part of your Entry in the Judging (see Rule 8 below).

Each entrant must submit an original photo (DO NOT COPY OTHERS’ WORKS, IN WHOLE OR IN PART). Entrant should be the only person involved in the creation and preparation of the dish. If any other person is involved in the creation of your photo (i.e., the
photographer who took the photo), you agree that prior to submitting your Entry, you have obtained the written consent of such person (in the case of a minor, you have obtained the written consent of the minor’s parent/legal guardian), granting the Sponsor and its respective designees the use of the photo for advertising, publicity and promotional purposes in any and all media, now or hereafter known, worldwide and on the Internet (including without limitation,
for posting on the Website in connection with the Contest), and in perpetuity by the Sponsor and its respective designees, without compensation (except to the extent prohibited by law) or additional consents and without prior notice, approval or inspection, and to execute specific written consents to such use if asked to do so. Sponsor reserves the right to request proof of these permissions in a form acceptable to Sponsor from you at any time. Failure to provide such proof, if requested, or if the proof is deemed by Sponsor or Administrator in their sole discretion to be inadequate in any respect may result in your disqualification, at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Dish must have been made (and photo of you and your dish
taken) specifically for entry in this Contest. Do NOT include personal information (e.g., your name, e-mail address or phone number) or the recipe itself in photo (photo and recipe may
be posted in conjunction with your participation in the Contest as detailed below). File attachment must be in one of the following formats: JPEG, PNG, GIF or PDF. Total file size must be no larger than 2MB. Send your entry by clicking the “submit” or other similar button on the entry page. Without the photo attachment, entry will be deemed incomplete and will be disqualified. All entries must be received by 11:59:59 pm ET on 2/28/13.

All eligible Entries received and recorded during the Promotion Period will be judged by an official judging panel, consisting of representatives of The Chew. The judging panel will select (3) winning entries from among all eligible entries received based on the following criteria: Creative Integration of the canned food in the recipe/dish (50%); Uniqueness/Originality (25%) and Appearance/Presentation of you and your dish in the photo (25%). In the event of a tie, the Entry from among all such tied entries with the higher/highest score in the “Creative Use of the canned food in the recipe/dish” criterion will be considered the Grand Prize winner.
