The Makers Plating Contest
sponsored by Libbey


Attention US-Based Chefs: Register below for a chance to participate in “The Makers Plating Contest” sponsored by Libbey. Selected chef challengers will receive free sample plateware and a chance to compete for some amazing prizes.

For makers, by makers. Libbey plateware is made for the makers of food, the makers of drinks, the makers of memories. In this unique plating contest, Chef’s Roll and Libbey want you to show us: What made you? Chosen competitors will be prompted to make a dish that represents your journey as a chef, a dish that represents a fond memory or person; a dish that represents your city or neighborhood.

Register below by May 9th to be one of 50 chefs selected to receive a free plate from Libbey and let your imagination take the lead as you use your delivery to create your own dish. 

From there, you’ll upload a high-quality, thumb-stopping photo of your creation to your public Instagram account, showcasing Libbey plateware and your culinary creativity. Just tag @libbeypro and use #MakersPlatingContest.

Three winners will take home some excellent prizes, including cash, Libbey gift cards, knife rolls from Boldric, and custom Chef’s Roll Apparel coats.
