Perhaps the best part of this summer’s Tomato Fest is its BLT Extravaganza. Chefs from restaurants like The Gage, Lockwood, Blackbird, and others will be adding locally-sourced BLTs to their menu from August 17 through September 20. The tomatoes will be heirloom, the pork local, and the results no doubt delicious. Here’s where you come in: if you’re artistically inclined, Tomato Fest’s organizers are in need of a poster promoting the BLT Extravaganza. Something clean, sophisticated … and bacony. If you think you have it in you, PDF submissions are accepted through August 14. Check out the official call for entries for details. [Chicago Tomato Fest via The Local Beet]
