BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, US, February 8, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Create TV announces the launch of the next Create Cooking Challenge, the fifth of its national video contests designed to seek digital hosts for a lifestyle series. This year, the Create Cooking Challenge: My Family’s Recipe is focused upon the rich, diverse heritage of Americans and the foods of their families passed down through generations – sometimes versions of local or regional dishes. The Grand Prize Winner will host a web series on CreateTV.com. Create is one of the nation’s most-watched multicast channels, airing on 241 public TV stations and reaching 40 million viewers annually.

Sponsored by American Public Television (APT), the Create Cooking Challenge: My Family’s Recipe runs from March 8 to April 5, 2022. Entrants must submit online a short (two minutes or less), original video featuring their recipe, a short narrative about their cooking interests and the recipe, a photo of the finished dish, and the recipe. The contest will be judged by Create staff and a panel of some of public television’s most recognized hosts: Kevin Belton (Kevin Belton’s Cookin’ Louisiana), Pati Jinich (Pati’s Mexican Table), Diane Kochilas (My Greek Table), Nick Stellino (Storytellers in the Kitchen), and Martin Yan (Yan Can Cook!).

The panel will judge submissions based on an entrant’s demonstrated knowledge, ability to present ideas succinctly, overall telegenic appeal, uniqueness, and production values. The Grand Prize includes $4,000 cash and production equipment valued at $1,000 to complete a 10-episode digital series for CreateTV.com. The Second Prize Winner will receive $1,000 cash and the same production equipment valued at $1,000 to complete a 3-episode digital series for CreateTV.com. The contest is open to people 18 years of age and older – from home cooks to professional chefs. A total of 18 winners will be named.
