Play Along!

Upcoming Themes!

Every week we showcase four illustrations on our homepage known as a Featured Collection. These illustrations are also included in our weekly newsletter to over 10K subscribers, many of whom are art directors.

Whether you are a seasoned contributor or submitting for the first time, here are some ideas and inspiration for your illustrations.

Your illustration does not need to be a recipe, but it must contain food and/or kitchen images and follow our standard size guideline. Create a scene, a pattern, a recipe, a guide, or an array of ingredients.

Below are five upcoming themes and the due dates for submitting.

We can't promise that your illustration will be selected for our Featured Collection but we can guarantee that you will have fun creating it and we will proudly showcase your work on our site!

Theme: Farmer's Market 

We sure hope all our Farmer’s Markets will stay open this year. We want to celebrate the local communities for bringing us fresh produce! How will you illustrate this theme? What is special about your market? Is it the freshly-baked pies or the bunches of leafy greens or local honey?
