DineLA Restaurant week returns today through Feb. 1 with the addition of an Instagram contest for diners.

More than 40 Santa Monica restaurants are signed on to take part in the dining event that showcases specially-priced $15, $20, and $25 lunch menus and $25, $35, and $45 dinner menus from hundreds of Los Angeles county’s most compelling restaurants.

For the first time ever, diners are invited to flaunt their foodie photography skills as part of the “Dine. Snap. Win.” contest on Instagram.

Patrons simply capture a picture of their favorite Restaurant Week dish and post with the hashtag #dineLA for a chance to win an exclusive dining prize.

With so many incredible dishes to choose from, the contest allows individuals to submit multiple entries from participating restaurants.

At the end of Restaurant Week, the 25 most popular eateries with dishes featured on Instagram will win 2013 Diner’s Choice.
