The biggest food photography competition in the world, Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year, is now open for submissions for the tenth year running.
Last year’s winner, K M Asad from Bangladesh, saw his winning photograph (shown above) in media across the world: from the BBC, the Guardian and The Times, to La Stampa, China Daily and MSN.
Since the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year Awards began in 2011, there have been over 70,000 entries from over 80 countries with a huge variety of images.
This year there are 25 enticing categories with subjects such as Food Portraiture, Street Food and Cream of the Crop as well as more journalistic themes such as Politics of Food, Food in Action and Food for Life.
There’s also a new category launched in memory of Claire Aho, 1925-2015, Finland’s greatest female photographer. This Award will celebrate women in photography.
After helping with the shortlisting for the awards for several years, I’m delighted to be joining the Judging panel which is headed by food photographer, David Loftus. Fellow judges include Fiona Shields, Head of Photography, Guardian News & Media, Susan Bright, Writer and Curator, Nik Sharma, Cookbook Author and Photographer, Francis Hodgson, Professor, Culture of Photography and Rein Skullerud, Head of Photo Unit, World Food Programme.
