AquaCurean, Savannah's new gourmet seafood and spirits celebration, has announced an extended deadline for competition entries.

Entries will now be accepted through midnight April 4 for both the seafood and craft cocktail competitions. These contests are free to enter and are open to all: amateurs and home chefs as well as professional bartenders and chefs. Cash prizes are available. Register here for the cocktail event and here for the seafood event.

Organizers are also seeking volunteers for the event, which takes place April 25-27 at The Westin. Each volunteer who donates six hours of their time will receive one ticket to an after-event Sunday brunch. You must be 21 or older and attend a volunteer training session at 6 p.m. April 18 or April 21 at The Westin. Fill out a volunteer application here.

Be sure to pick up DO Savannah on April 24 for all the info about AquaCurean. Order your tickets in advance to get a discount.
