Very soon will will know who will be selected to proceed into the final round of insing’s search for their Hawker Food Lover. Then from the finalists, one person will win a 6 month writing contract as well as a Canon EOS 550D!
In the first round, 20 participants were selected from almost 500 entries to attend a workshop where I shared my experience writing food reviews and tips on taking food photos. Then they were set the task of writing a review of the dim sum they had that day.
Now this is where the fun really begins. From these participants we will select 3 to enter the final round where YOU get to determine their fate and also get a chance to devise a devious task to test their knowledge of Hawkerology.
In the final round, the top 3 will be required to turn up at a hawker centre and be subjected to three tests. The first is an interrogation about a hawker stall review which they will have submitted, the second is a blind taste test in front of a panel of judges (of which yours truly is one) and the third can be a cunning test which YOU have come up with!
So if you think you have a devious and sadistic way of testing their taste buds, do visit the insing website to have a look at their reviews and help select the foodies whom you most like to see suffer the ravages of your ingenious plan!
