Centres of Art, Culture & Tourism, or CACT, are the official touristic centres of Lanzarote.

During the month of March CACT are running a gastronomy themed photo contest, jointly with gastroevents.net, an organisation dedicated to setting up gastronomy events.

Simply take a photo of your food or drink at any of the centre restaurants and email them to info@gastroevents.net before the 31st of March. You can send a maximum of three photos per person. And mention Lanzarote Information in the email.

The goal of the contest is to portray a gastronomic experience lived in any of the restaurants of the centres, giving free rein to the imagination. The only requirement is to show the enjoyable experience of having lunch, dinner or drink something there.

The cash prizes are quite substantial: the first prize is €1,000, the second prize is €500 and the third prize is €250.

Also, the specialised jury will choose two photo that best reflects the Lanzarote Product and Lanzarote Wine, each of them winning a hamper worth €100 of island produce and Lanzarote wine, respectively.
