Weekend Challenge: Tasty tours

Alex Dao
July 17, 2015 by Alex Dao Staff

Hey there delectable documenters,

It’s not nice to choose favorites, but if I’m being completely honest, the videos I love best are travel vids that dedicate as much screen time to the local cuisine as they do to the top tourist sites. That’s why, on my recent trip to Montreal, I simply had to capture the best things I ate as well as all the fun things I did (Bixi! Tam-tams! Jazz Fest!).

Arguably, The Perennial Plate makes the tastiest travel videos around. Just try not to get too hungry watching their food-filled film “From Japan with Love (and Dashi)”.

With that in mind, this week we challenge you to take us on a tasty tour of the city or town you’re in. Don’t worry if you aren’t traveling — you can still show us the appetizing options your hometown has to offer and give us a taste of your city’s vibe! If you want even more mouthwatering examples, feast your eyes on my Food+Travel Group.

The Rules: 

+ Create a video showing off the food and overall vibe of the city or town you’re in, and keep it to under a minute! Remember that only videos made specifically for this Challenge will be considered.

+ If you add music, make sure you use a song you or a buddy created, something from the Vimeo Music Store, or a track from our iPhone video editing app Cameo! If you do choose to use a Music Store song, please include a link in the description.

+ Anything goes for your title, but add this at the end of your video’s description: “Created for the Weekend Challenge: Vimeo Weekend Challenge

+ Upload and post your video to the Weekend Challenge Group by ***Tuesday, July 21, 2015*** at 11:59 PM (EST). Just follow the screenshots below:

The Prizes:

+ The winner will receive a Challenge badge on their video, and free Vimeo Plus account for one year! If you’re already a Plus member, you’ll get another year tacked on to the end of your current subscription.

+ The runner-up will receive an extra 3GB of upload space in their weekly quota!

All videos must be approved by the Vimeo Staff before appearing in the Group, so don’t worry if your video doesn’t show up at first; we’ll get to it!

Ready for a challenge?

Take us on a tasty tour wherever you are!
