Do you love Vancouver’s expanding street food culture? Do you feel that instagramming what you eat is a special kind of public service? Do you also enjoy, at times, linking said instagrams of your meals to your twitter or other social media feeds? If you answered yes to these questions, you are to Invoke and Social Media Week, what Turduckens are to holiday dinners. In short, you’ve got to get on this cross-city challenge with lots of sweet, sweet prizes up for grabs: hundreds of dollars in Whole Foods gift cards, and likely several notches for your Klout score that’ll come hand-in-hand with your street food tweet dominance.

From Invoke:

The Social Media Week Cross-City Challenge is built around sharing your favourite street food finds and feasts through tweets. Social media savvy food lovers in London, Chicago, Los Angeles or Vancouver can enter to win while rising to the cream of the social media crop. Participants who post text based tweets will receive 10 points. Twenty extra points will be allocated to tweets that include a photo (uploaded via any means including Twitpic, Lockerz, Instagram etc.) and 25 additional points will be allocated to tweets generated directly from within the Eat St. App. The Most Valuable Player (and prize winner) will be the person who shares the most street food tweets in their city!

The challenge begins TOMORROW Saturday, September 22, and runs til Thursday the 27th. Which means we have the advantage of utilizing the Food Cart Fest this Sunday to achieve maximum efficiency of points with over 15 mobile food vendors congregated in one place! It’d probably be a good idea to also download the Eat St. App, which shows you real-time locations food carts, wherever you may be.
