PHOENIX — The Scottsdale Culinary Festival is accepting applications from foodies who want to be a guest judge at this year’s contest through Wednesday.

The prize package the winner will receive sounds pretty tasty: two VIP passes to the festival’s festivities on Saturday, a one-night stay at the Saguaro Hotel and the chance to tour some of the state’s best restaurants, where they can trade recipe tips with chefs.

However, applying will take a few more steps than just tossing your name into the frying pan.

If you think you have the taste buds to make the cut, you’ll have to upload a 20-30 second video to Instagram, Facebook or YouTube explaining why you should be the foodie selected. Submissions must include the hashtags #SCFLOVE and #SCFFOODIE.

Videos also must be marked “public.”

A group from the Scottsdale League for the Arts will pick the top three favorites and the public will be able to vote on its favorite video through Feb. 28.

The winner will be announced March 2.

Applicants must be 21 years of age or older, live in Arizona and not have any food or dietary restrictions that would prevent them from tasting menu items.

The Scottsdale Culinary Fest is scheduled to take place April 8-9.

We want to hear from you.
