Pittsburgh City Paper and PA Beef Council are looking for the city’s best burgers. And this year, in lieu of our typical in-person, month-long burger contest, we’re launching a socially-distant version — a Burgher Battle — open to anyone with a grill and a spatula.

Starting Mon., July 13 — whether you’re a home cook or one of Pittsburgh’s biggest chefs — you can submit a photo of your burger masterpiece to the Burgher Battle Photo Contest. Pittsburghers will then have the chance to vote for their favorite burger in two categories: Home Cooks and Restaurants.

Winners will receive prize packages and, of course, bragging rights. And the best part? It's 100% FREE to enter!


Here’s how it will work:

Step 1: Grill and top your burger — but don’t take a bite yet!
Step 2: Take a snapshot of your perfect burger.
Step 3: Upload it to Pittsburgh City Paper’s Burgher Battle photo platform between July 13-26 with the name of your creation, a description of all the layers, and what makes it worthy to win this battle.
Step 4: Vote! Voting begins on Wed., July 29 and ends Wed., Aug. 12, so be prepared to share your photo with all of your friends and family (and customers for restaurants!) and prove that your burger is the best. Winners — with photos and descriptions of each burger — will be announced in our Aug. 19 issue.
