Eligibility. The Eatdrink Forest City Cookbook Recipe Contest is open to legal residents of

London, Ontario as of the beginning of the Contest Period, and who are not an employee of or domiciled with an employee of Eatdrink Inc. or the contest judges. No purchase is necessary. The Contest is void to anyone NOT a resident of London, Ontario. This is the Forest City community cookbook, so those submitting recipes must be residents of the Forest City, London, Ontario, Canada.

Contest Period. Contest runs from September 5, 2017 at 12:01 am EST to October 31 at 12:00 pm midnight ET (“Contest Period”).

How to Enter. To enter the Contest, entrants must submit an original recipe using the Official Entry Form provided by the Contest Sponsor, indicate that they wish to enter the Contest, and provide contact information to Contest Sponsor to enable the Contest Sponsor to contact the entrant if they win.

Judging. Following the conclusion of the Contest Period, the Contest Sponsor will select three finalists based on judging criteria outlined on the Official Entry Form. The finalists will be notified by email. Only the selected finalists will be notified. If a selected finalist cannot be contacted within three days of when their entry was selected, that finalist forfeits their entry, and an alternative finalist may be selected. The three finalist recipes will be prepared and judged by a panel selected by Eatdrink magazine, with one winner selected.

Prize. The winning prize is inclusion of the winning recipe in the Forest City Cookbook. Prizes must be accepted as awarded and are not transferable or otherwise redeemable for cash. The odds of winning the prize depend on the number of eligible entries received.
