VINELAND, NJ -- Get your camera ready, log onto Instagram, and get ready for the 2017 #JerseyFreshLove photo contest..
New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas H. Fisher and the 2016 winner of the Jersey Fresh Love social media photo contest, Ryan Briggs, owner of Outlaw’s Burger Barn and Creamery in Vineland, recently kicked off the 2017 #jerseyfreshlove Instagram-only photo competition.
“The #jerseyfreshlove campaign was a success last year, with fans submitting thousands of photographs from all over New Jersey,” Secretary Fisher said. “We appreciate all who participated and your ongoing support of local New Jersey farmers, markets, restaurants, wineries, breweries, and products. We urge people to share their love of everything Jersey Fresh, our successful 33-year-old agricultural branding program.”
Last year’s winning entry from Briggs was captioned “Burgers, Jersey Fresh style!,” featuring a crab cake burger comprised of ground beef, blue crab cake, Jersey Fresh tomatoes and organic field greens, topped with sriracha lime aioli. Briggs summed the photo up with the hashtags: #burgers #surfnturf #jerseyfresh #jerseyfreshlove #farm2fork #burgerroutecontest.
To participate in the contest this year, people are encouraged to post photos of favorite fruits, vegetables, markets, pick-your-own farms and agri-tourism activities on Instagram using the #jerseyfreshlove hashtag.
This year’s grand prize will be a choice of a Jersey Fresh Experience worth up to $500. The contest will also feature one winner each week that will receive a Jersey Fresh Prize Pack.
The contest runs until August 31.
