Summer is officially here! In an effort to celebrate dinner outdoors, beach picnics, summer produce, barbecues–the list goes on and on–we’re hosting a photo contest so we can all rejoice in the fun.

Enter the #BlueApronSummer Photo Contest to win our Ultimate Get-Cooking Kit (plus our summer essentials) by submitting your summer-inspired photos on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. 

Each week, we’ll announce a fresh summer theme for the contest. Stay tuned for new theme announcements on Monday evenings (or read about the themes below) to make sure you’re keeping up!

To enter: upload your photos here or submit them on Twitter and Instagram by tagging them with #BlueApronSummer and @BlueApronMeals. We’ll regram one hand-picked, beautiful, and on-theme winner each Monday at 2pm. 

Then, on July 14, we’ll randomly select one lucky grand-prize winner from all contest entries to receive our Ultimate Get-Cooking Kit with a few of our summer essentials (a $750 value). 

Now for the fun part…here are the weekly themes!

Theme 1: Outdoor Dining

Week #1. This week–today through the end of June–submit your Outdoor Dining Photos on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Share the photos of you, your friends, and your family enjoying your Blue Apron recipes in any way that screams summer. Whether you’re eating outdoors, cooking on the grill, or enjoying dinner with some fresh flowers, open windows, and a summer cocktail, we want to see your moments in the kitchen.
