Social Media Week is a worldwide event that takes place during September 24-28 that explores the social, cultural, and economic impacts of social media. This year Social Media Week has teamed up with Invoke (creators of the Eat St. iPhone app) to come up with a cross city food truck challenge.
The challenge is between foodies from Vancouver, Los Angeles, Chicago, and London to see which city is the most social media savvy when it comes to street food. You can participate in this challenge by using Twitter to share your street food experiences.
1. Tweets must be shared to @eatsttweet
2. Tweets must include your city’s designated challenge hashtag - Vancouver – #eatSMWVAN
3. Tweets must include the food truck’s name or Twitter handle
Participants who post text based tweets will receive 10 points. Twenty extra points will be allocated to tweets that include a photo (uploaded via any means including Twitpic, Lockerz, Instagram etc.) and 25 additional points will be allocated to tweets generated directly from within the Eat St. App. The Most Valuable Player (and prize winner) will be the person who shares the most street food tweets in their city!
There will be prizes and gift certificates given out to the MVP of the winning city, the MVPs of the remaining cities, the best photo of a food truck, and the best photo of a street food dish.
