Introducing the World Chaîne Day Photo Contest
April 22, 2017
The organising committee is delighted to announce a Photo Contest for the 2017 World Chaîne Day.

Key elements:

- Open to all members the contest will be as a result of social media postings.
- Participants can be individual members, a group, local Bailliage, etc.
- Photos must be taken during the World Chaîne Day: Saturday, April 22, 2017.

We are looking for pictures that:
- express the values of Chaîne and the feeling of solidarity
- spotlight Chaîne activities during the World Chaîne Day
- introduce gastronomic culture from different parts of the world
- capture a genuine feeling of the moment

The best three pictures will be awarded with a certificate, reputation, merit, title and publicity!

Participation will be through photos posted on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, marked the relevant hashtags. You can also send pictures by email to

Nevertheless, the Jury will also go through unmarked and other WCD photo material as part of the process to find the winners.

In addition to the top three pictures, the Jury will give special recognition to:

- the best food photo
- the most joyful view
- the best “Chaîne professionals at work” image

Winners will be selected and announced within two weeks after the WCD by the Jury, the members of which are:

Ari-Pekka Parviainen
Chair of the World Chaîne Day

This contest also gives national Bailliages an excellent opportunity to organise their own contests: to select the best National photo, or any other theme, and give prizes at a national level. The National Bailliages can individually decide and select national winners benefiting overall from the WCDmaterial.

The all-important hashtags are: #chaineday, #worldchaineday, #chainedesrotisseurs.
