EYW wants your food photos!
Since launching in late 2011, Eat Your World has shown an average growth in visits of 35% every month in the ever-expanding niches of local food tourism, food photography, and international travel. The site has been featured in The New York Times, Lifehacker, FATHOM, AFAR, Budget Travel, and more (see Press page); current content partners include Britannica.com and The Daily Meal (syndication). Further exposure comes via cofounder and writer Laura Siciliano-Rosen, who periodically writes on behalf of Eat Your World for publications such as MensJournal.com, AARP the Magazine, Serious Eats, and The Daily Meal.
Food tourism—“any tourism experience in which one learns about, appreciates, and/or consumes food and drink that reflects the local, regional or national cuisine, heritage, and culture,” as defined by the Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance, a non-profit that consults on food-and-beverage-themed tourism development worldwide—is a big, fast-growing business. According to a report cited here, 39 million U.S. leisure travelers in 2012 chose a destination based on its available culinary activities, while another 35 million sought out culinary activities after a destination was decided upon. We can help you reach those foodie travelers!

HOW TO WORK WITH US
We have the following ad spaces available on our website, with the option to run on the Home and Blog pages exclusively or on a specific destination. Eat Your World is a popular trip-planning resource, incorporating lots of eating tips for foodie travelers (“What to Eat”), but also prompting them to think about activities (“How to Burn It Off”: biking, hiking, kayaking, etc.) and hotels (“Where to Stay”) in a given location. Want to target readers traveling to Nashville, Amsterdam, Delhi, or another of our 35 other featured destinations? We can help with that.

A sponsored post or giveaway must always be identified as such, but will appear on the EYW Blog page and be featured on the Home page, just as all EYW Blog posts are. Posts can be written by you or by us, will be pushed to social media networks, and may optionally appear in an EYW newsletter. Embedded video, images, and/or links are all possible. Content must align with Eat Your World’s; a clear food and/or travel theme must be present. (Per Google's rules, we do not allow do-follow links in sponsored content.)
Please contact [email protected] for rates.
We don't typically accept group press trips, whether for bloggers or traditional media. This is partly due to our editorial policy, which dictates that we independently choose our featured restaurants, hotels, and activities; additionally, we do not function as a typical travel blog—our site is a niche local-food guide, with a blog component. However, this doesn’t preclude us from working with tourism boards to visit and cover specific destinations on their behalf: Local food exists everywhere! With transportation and some on-the-ground assistance, we can offer tourism boards the following:
--a dedicated destination guide to a city or country, with a focus on the destination’s local dishes and drinks (what they are and where visitors can find them; i.e., “What to Eat”) as well as suggestions for activities ("How to Burn It Off") and hotels ("Where to Stay")
--3-4 posts on the EYW Blog dedicated to various elements of our experience in the destination
--live social media updates for duration of the travel
--the potential for a Kindle destination guide, to be sold on Amazon.com
--the possibility of an externally placed story in other outlets, written by Laura
