Each Monday, Bigtime Bites selects a "Visitor Scouting Report of the Week," and the winner receives a Bigtime Bites hat or t-shirt. The winner's report is also featured on Bigtime Bites.
Reports are chosen based on overall quality, including picture, story, and description of what makes the dish "Bigtime." Although there is no one right way to writing a scouting report, specific is always better than general. For example "the lemon zest on top adds an unexpected pop of freshness" is preferred over "the dish has great flavor."
Bigtime Bites periodically also sends hats or t-shirts to users who are passionate about the site and input a large number of quality reports.
All winners are contacted via e-mail.
