If you are into food photography or food styling there is a brand new conference and/or photo contest called Food Photo Affair. It’s being held in Napa California November 5th - 8th. Right now you can get a nice discount for early registration.
If you can’t go but would like to compete in the food photography portion, it’s very reasonably priced and it’s a perfect way to get your name out there.
