  1. I Am so bummed, I just saw the contest. It’s March 1st. I am going to make the fruity cinnamon twist tomorrow anyway. Will you be having another contest?

  2. I’m confused, the above contest rules state to upload to Instagram a photo of “gruyere & green olive loaves, however Joy the Baker also has a “Apple Pie Biscuits” post that encourages me to upload a photo of the Apple Pie Biscuits as my entry….which is it? If I upload to Instagram both photos of both prepared recipes is that 2 entries, or still just one. Is there a correct recipe to prepare for this contest?

  3. Wow.. how long has this contest been going on? All except for one comment/reply date back months and months ago!

    Just to clarify, everyone posts a pic of the same Gruyere & Green Olive Loaves and the winner is chosen randomly. So, whether you have photog skills or not, your chances of winning are not based on looks, right? iPhones/iPads do not generate the best of pics. thanks and happy holidays!

  4. oh, man, i really really want to enter this but i’m not from the us :(. is there a chance of maybe just winning the baking kit? i don’t care about the flour as much as i do about that marble rolling pin :)

        1. I’d like to enter and I already follow both, KAF and Joy! The only issue is I’m Canadian ???? could I still enter? PLEASE!!!!!

  5. It says you can submit as many photos as you want. That doesn’t impact who wins right? Like 5 pictures from me is not 5 entries because I’m the same person …..

  6. I’m super interested in the contest but I can’t believe that you guys require the photographer to give up all rights to the photo WITHOUT ATTRIBUTION. That’s a steep price to pay. I mean, it’s one thing to give KAF or Joy the Baker the right to use my image but without even getting photo credit? I’m really shocked by that. Crediting a photo with the artist’s name doesn’t cost a dime. Why wouldn’t you WANT to help photographers in that way?
