Video submissions will be accepted until May 15 at noon

Crack out the cameras and aprons, the 10th annual Hands-on Cook-off contest is back.

Over the decade, participants from 18 months to 94 years old submitted 335 videos, taking home $35,000 in prizes.

Just under one month remains in the 10th annual provincewide video cooking contest with the chance to win over $4,500 in prizes.

This year, the program adds a prize for returning participants who are automatically entered into the alumni draw for the chance at a $500 cash prize. Judging notes suggest they’re always inspired by the positive energy from participants, the teamwork shown in videos, and the stories behind the recipes.

The grand prize includes $1,000 cash. Participation is free and easy but you do need a pal, a recipe and a recording device to film a video of three minutes or less.

Video submissions will be accepted until May 15 at noon, with prizes awarded by a panel of judges. Learn more at bettertogetherbc.ca/contest.

Judges include:

• Chef Ned Bell, Ocean Wise Executive Chef and Culinary Director of the Vancouver Club

• Chef David Hawksworth, Chef/Owner of Hawksworth Restaurant Group

• Claire Newell, travel expert and media personality

• Susie Wall, style and entertainment expert

• Samantha Gutmanis, food editor and blogger

• Honourable Lana Popham, B.C.’s Minister of Agriculture
