Vermont Hot Chocolate Week Photo Contest

Introducing...the Vermont Hot Chocolate Week Photo Contest!

As part of Vermont Hot Chocolate Week, February 1st - 7th, snap the best photo of your hot chocolate and post it to Instagram with the hashtag #vthotchocolate to enter DigInVT’s photo contest.


Entries are accepted NOW through February 7th.


Pick up Vermont ingredients at your local food market, follow a recipe, chef-created or an old favorite, or pick up a cup to-go! Any way you want to enjoy this special treat, as long as it includes Vermont ingredients, is fair game for this fun photo contest!

Consider photo composition, lighting, and your own personal aesthetic. Include your favorite hot chocolate mug and/or throw some fun accoutrements on top! Use your creativity! Bonus points if you include cows in the photo (just kidding ;) but it would be cool). 

Vermont Ingredients

Be sure to tag at least one Vermont restaurant, farm, or food and beverage producer whose ingredients you included, recipe you used, or hot chocolate you purchased.


Our panel of judges will choose their top four favorites. The judges are:

  • Jackie Daub, Lake Champlain Chocolates
  • Amy Richardson, Richardson Family Farm
  • Shane Rogers, Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund / Farm to Plate
  • Anson Tebbetts, Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets


The winning photographers will receive a goodie bag of prizes (like a mug, chocolates, coffee, maple syrup, a hat, and more) to help them continue the hot chocolate fun!

The winners will be chosen and announced on Friday, February 12th.


Stay tuned on our Instagram page (@diginvt) and follow #vthotchocolate for plenty of hot chocolate inspiration.
