Food Crush: A New (Food-Centric) Instagram Contest + Win a $250 Target Gift Card

By Brittni • Updated on 05/21/2016


UPDATE: A winner has been selected… Congrats to @dietitiandebbie! You’ve won the $250 Target gift card. 

With yesterday’s announcement of last month’s hashtag contest winner, it’s time to roll out the new one and start all over again!

So….this month’s Instagram hashtag is #psfoodcrush. Up for grabs this month…Fame and fortune! Kidding, but it’s still good… Win a $250 gift card to Target!

Here’s the deal with #psfoodcrush… You like food, right? Me too! In fact, I really, really like food. All kinds! Not just the sugary variety. And I want to see your awesome food photos on Instagram.

Maybe it’s a pic of tacos from your favorite restaurant, an ice cream cone piled to the sky, a homemade pizza, or a dozen donuts. Any foods that you love are fair game (whether they’re homemade or not)! You don’t have to be a wiz in the kitchen to enter, so don’t worry about that.

Here are the only things you need to do in order to enter to win a $250 Target gift card…


The Rules:

Add @brittnimehlhoff and the hashtag #psfoodcrush to the caption of any food photos (that you have personally taken) throughout the entire month of April.

Any photos that fit the above requirements will be eligible to win a $250 gift card to Target (who couldn’t use that?!), and will also be eligible to be featured on the Paper & Stitch blog (with proper credit to you of course) and via Instagram features during the duration of the contest (again, with proper credit).

You can enter as many times as you’d like during the month of April. Just make sure to include @brittnimehlhoff and #psfoodcrush to any photo captions that fit the bill.

*Winner will be announced no later than May 2nd on Instagram and will receive an IG message to prompt him or her to collect prize.* If you have any questions about the rules or any other details, feel free to let me know in the comments. Can’t wait to see all of your colorful photos!
