Time is running out for entering the CREATE COOKING CHALLENGE 2018. Iconic TV chefs including Rick Bayless (Mexico – One Plate at a Time), Ellie Krieger(Ellie’s Real Good Food), Kevin Belton (New Orleans Cooking with Kevin Belton), and Joanne Weir(Joanne Weir’s Plates and Places), begin their work as final judges soon.
Joining them as a final judge will be last year’s CREATE COOKING CHALLENGE 2017 winner, Buki Elegbede. Sponsored by American Public Television, the distributor of Create TV, the Challenge seeks America’s next great cooking star. The call for video entries closes at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, March 6.
This year’s Grand Prize winner will be awarded $4,000 and production equipment valued at $1,000 to complete a 10-part video series for CreateTV.com. Last year’s winner’s series, Baked by Buki , continues its premiere on the Create TV website, providing an example of the kind of work the judges are seeking.
Open to professional and amateur chefs, the CREATE COOKING CHALLENGE 2018 will be judged by these celebrity final judges who will screen user-generated video auditions of two minutes or less, demonstrating an entrant’s best recipe, tip or project. The panel will judge submissions based on the entrant’s demonstrated culinary knowledge, ability to present ideas succinctly, overall telegenic appeal, uniqueness, and production values.
Submission is available online only. Visit CreateTV.com/challenge for information, rules and the submission form.
