What do I win?

The Taco Trailblazer will be awarded $20,000 to forge the Yelp Taco Trail and visit each top-rated taco spot while writing fun blog post content for Yelp and capturing photo and video along the journey.

Yelp’s Taco Trailblazer will serve a four month term, beginning November 1, 2022 and ending February 29, 2023. They will be asked to create three videos per month and three blog posts throughout the term.

How do I enter?

Applicants will be required to submit a 30-60 second video explaining why you’re qualified to blaze the taco trail. Applicants will also need to submit a link to a Yelp collection created by you with a minimum of 5 food businesses (See Yelp’s Support Page for steps on how to create a collection.)

Participants will be judged based on their love for local businesses, taco tasting talent and social media presence.
