Time is running out to enter Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year, the world’s leading awards for food photography and film, with submissions closing on Sunday 5 February 2023.
One of the most acclaimed aspects of the competition is the diversity and breadth of food photography and film it celebrates across its 20-plus categories. New to the selection this year is Pink Lady® Moments of Joy. This category is for images showing the joy experienced through food; whether it be in the growing, preparing and cooking, or the serving and eating of food. The winner of the Pink Lady® Moments of Joy category will win £1,500 GBP
Also new this year is the return of the famed Champagne Taittinger reception. The reception will be at a new venue: the world-famous BAFTA, Piccadilly, London in May. Finalists will join judges and press for the exclusive screening of the Online Awards Film. Following the announcement, all finalists will have their images exhibited at the prestigious Royal Photographic Society.
This year’s global judging panel, chaired by legendary food photographer, David Loftus, includes: Ella Ravilious, Curator, Victoria and Albert Museum, Nik Sharma, Cookbook author, Photographer, Columnist, Claire Rees, Photography Director, Bafta, Phillip Prodger, Executive Director, Curatorial Exhibitions, LA and former Head of Photographs, National Portrait Gallery, London and Rein Skullerud, Head of Photo Unit, World Food Programme.
The media coverage of the Awards continues to grow across the world. To date, last year’s photographs have received more than 400 pieces of coverage across print, digital, radio and television in over 50 countries: from the BBC, The Times, Forbes, National Geographic and MSN, to Corriere della Sera, CNN, China Daily, Tatler and El Mundo. In addition, winning photographers have been interviewed on the world’s largest radio station, BBC World Service, and one of America’s biggest news TV programmes, CBS Saturday Morning.
‘Entering this competition a few years ago totally changed my life and has forged a very successful career for me in food photography.’ says Donna Crous, a 2020 Finalist, ‘This is THE gold standard for food photographers.’
