Southern Living and Alabama Gulf Seafood Partner for Vacation Giveaway

Let’s be honest—lots of us love to snap and share photos of our food, especially when it looks as good as it tastes.

Now, thanks to Southern Living and Alabama Gulf Seafood, you can get rewarded for it.

All you have to do is cook or order a plate of fresh Alabama Gulf Seafood and post a photo of your meal to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #ALSeafood. Once your photo is posted, simply follow the prompt that pops up immediately afterward.

Entrants will be encouraged to collect votes for their photos on Southern Living’s Facebook page. The top ten winners will be invited with one guest to attend a luxurious one-night getaway at the Barnsley Resort in Adairsville, GA on Saturday, August 9, featuring an intimate tide-to-table dining experience with live music.

“I have created this menu based on roots and traditions using what’s in “SEAson” and pairing it with the summer’s bounty,” said Barnsley Resort executive chef Adam Hayes. “I love mixing plated and family style recipes to create beach inspired dining experiences.”

What’s on the menu, you ask? Nothing short of an Alabama Gulf Seafood feast.
