Quandoo’s Q Plate Instagram Contest Lets You Win A Holiday Every Month

Quandoo Contest Collage

If like us, you have an irresistible urge to take photos of your food before digging into it, then we think that the Quandoo Q Plate Contest is perfect for you.

As part of their latest campaign, Quandoo is giving away S$150 cash-back each to 6 lucky winners and a 4D3N holiday for 2 pax to either Hong Kong or Bali worth S$1,500 to 3 luckier winners over the course of 3 months between August and October 2017.

But here’s the catch. You will be taking and uploading a photo of your finished plate instead of your food. This is all part of Quandoo’s plan to move away from conventional food photos and towards a new trend where diners show their empty plates instead because as much as filters make your food more attractive, an empty plate serves as a better indication of a great meal.

Read on to find out how you can simply take a photo to win great prizes!

Quandoo Q Plate


If you have not heard of Quandoo, they are essentially a global restaurant reservation platform that allows diners to search for, find and make reservations at restaurants online with just a few clicks on your desktop or mobile devices.

And on Quandoo, the listed merchants are aplenty; choices range from local favourites to Michelin-starred international restaurants and cuisines from Asian to French.

Besides making it easier than ever to reserve a table at your favourite restaurants, diners can benefit from loyalty points, cash-back rewards, special offers and the ability to share their dining experiences with other Quandoo users.

Listing over 1200 restaurants for you to choose from in Singapore alone, there is no reason why dining out should be a hassle nor is it a challenge anymore. There will always be restaurants for you to check out!

Quandoo Q Plate Holiday


As we mentioned, the Quandoo Q Plate Contest will be held over a 3-month period (August to October 2017) with 3 winners selected a month. Each month, 1 lucky person will walk away with a 4D3N holiday for 2 pax worth S$1,500 to either Hong Kong or Bali and the other 2 will receive S$150 in cash-back rewards.

Winners will be drawn from each specific month’s entries alone and they will be tracked via the #QuandooMoment hashtag. Feel free to submit multiple entries to increase your chances of winning but do note that this contest is only open to local participants.

To take part in this contest and be that much closer to winning a holiday or some money, simply follow these few easy steps:

  1. Place your cutlery in a Q shape on your empty plate and snap a photo of it.
  2. Ensure that your Instagram account is public.
  3. Upload your picture to Instagram with the following: Hashtag #QuandooMoment, tag @quandoo_sg and tag the restaurant or restaurant location.

To get you started, here are 4 restaurants in partnership with Quandoo that you can consider dining at and having your first (or first three) photos submitted.
