People are eating with their eyes just as much as their stomachs these days. If your food photography is up to par, these 5 Instargam accounts can help you get some serious attention.
Feedfeed.info describes itself as a place that “connects people who love to cook”. They have a large community of chefs, home cooks, bloggers, for profit and non-profit brands and organizations, authors, and even farms sharing their recipes in one place.
All you need to do is take a picture of your food and tag it with #feedfeed and/or @thefeedfeed. From there, editors choose what goes on their account. This is also available on all of their other social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest)
Don’t worry if you don’t get chosen! Your photo still stays in the tagged section of their accounts. There, followers can sift through and find whatever they’re looking for. They can also search by Instagram accounts to view all of your posts in one place on their website along with other ways to promote yourself through their page.
Have you ever wondered what #vsco is? Don’t worry, you are not alone. Vsco, or Visual Supply Co was originally a photo editing app for iPhone that expanded into Android once it gained notoriety. Since then, they have created their own niche on vsco.co for art created on smartphones.
FOODVSCO is dedicated to delicious looking plates. By following the account and tagging your photos with #foodvsco, you are up for being featured on their page. Submitting images via direct messages couldn’t hurt either!
3. Food Gawker
Welcome to the Gawkerverse galleries. Editors curate photos for the best of all things style, fashion, design and architecture, wedding, art, crafts, but most importantly: food. Foodgawker is another one with a large reach all over social media including Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
Featured photos on their Instagram accounts are selected from submissions made from the main page on foodgawker.com. You have to make an account with the website to submit, and it’s definitely worth it. Your recipes can appear along with other beauties on their general feed. Your personal feed displays all of your posts and links back to your blog.
4. Daily Food Feed
Found on both Instagram and Twitter, this account is dedicated to all things tasty. Food from all over the country is shared on the page. FULL DISCLOSURE: it appears that the more decadent and borderline gluttonous the food appears to be, the better chances you get a spot.
The tag #dailyfoodfeed will enter your food for the running to be chosen. It’s always great to be in the tagged section of their page even if you aren’t featured, but if you’re feeling a little more proactive, the page also provides an email () to contact the administrators. Maybe a personal submission can increase your chances of getting your recipes out there.
“How you eat is how you live”. That is food52’s motto. Setting out to inspire others to cook more often in the midst of our overworking-is-cool culture, they provide an environment for people passionate about food to share their recipes and inspiration behind meals.
A simple #food52grams at the end of your post can enter you in the running to be featured on the website’s Instagram or Pinterest. Creating an account with their blog also has its perks. Similar to food gawker and thefeedfeed, you can post your own recipes as well as comments on others and enter contests. While your recipe links don’t immediately redirect users to your blog like food gawker, your main page does have a personal links section in the bio.
