Cercle V Calendar Contest 2018

We are thrilled to announce that the Annual Cercle V Valrhona Calendar Contest is returning for the third year.

We were so glad to have so many people participate in the 2017 calendar, and hope that the 2018 edition will inspire even more of you to share your creations. 

The 2018 Valrhona Calendar will feature images of beautiful creations by Valrhona's North American Cercle V members selected through this exciting social media contest.

For a chance to be featured in the 2018 Valrhona Calendar, you must:

Before Monday, October 9:

  • Post a beautiful picture of a dish you've created using Valrhona products on your Instagram account tagging @valrhonausa and using #CercleV.
  • Include the name of your creation, a brief description of the dish and any Valrhona products used.
  • Email directly with the following information in order to be considered for the Calendar:
  • The image in high-resolution - 300 DPI minimum and large enough to print at a size of 8.5" x 11'' (27.9 cm x 21.6 cm) *iPhone images will be considered as long as they are print-quality.
  • One or two lines describing what inspired your dish or creation.
  • The name of your dish.
  • Valrhona products used.

On Tuesday, October 10, all submitted images will be posted on the special "@ValrhonaUSACercleV" Instagram account. This handle will be promoted, asking people to vote for favorite picture by liking it. 

On Monday, October 16, voting (or liking!) will close and the final images chosen for the 2018 Valrhona Calendar will be announced on Tuesday, October 17.
*Please note that there will be a maximum of one image per Chef.

Valrhona will consider the number of public votes received on @ValrhonaUSACercleV, however, the final decision for inclusion in the calendar is up to the discretion of the Valrhona USA team.

In any case, if your picture meets our aesthetic standard, it might also be featured on our main Instagram account. Visit @valrhonausa to discover the type of pictures we love sharing!

The final print calendar will be sent to all North American Cercle V members as a special Holiday Gift. It will also be sent to all Valrhona Distributors and sold on Valrhona's website - with all proceeds going to charity.

Good luck to all who choose to participate. We look forward to seeing and sharing all of your beautiful creations!
