For the past six weeks, dozens of North Coast residents participated in Coast Weekend’s Lockdown Lowdown contests.

We received many unique entries, ranging from thoughtfully-crafted songs about the North Coast, to photos of residents creatively having fun at home.

But no one participated in the cooking video contest, leaving us at Coast Weekend with three gift certificates and no winners. Rather than use the gift cards for another purpose, we are revamping the contest.

Instead of sending in a cooking video, we want to see a photo of your homemade meal, whether it’s a smoothie or a more intricate dish. Along with the photo, please include instructions on how to make the dish.

To enter your photo, visit Entries will be accepted until midnight on May 28, then open for voting between May 28 and June 4. The top three vote-getters will receive a gift certificate to either The Logger or Trina & Ron’s Place.

All ages are welcome to participate. If a participant is under age 13, please use an adult’s contact information.
